The University Chaplaincy hosted its 6th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service in January 2020. The annual event is intended to give students an opportunity to promote a sense of belonging and connection with other Tufts community members, critically engage with MLK’s vision of a “revolution of values” towards a “person-oriented society, explore personal values in connection to living in community at Tufts and in our local communities, and create space and a model for building thoughtful connections with Boston-area community members. The program challenges participants to consider, "How do you put your values into action?" In past events, students have participated in on-site service on MLK Day, in partnership with local organizations. You can read more about past programs by following the links below.
Given the measures in place to promote the health and safety of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be hosting an MLK Day of Service in 2021. We look forward to hosting the event in the future, and encourage you to consider participating in the 2021 MLK Symposium on Wednesday, February 3, 2021.
