Honoring His Legacy

Martin Luther King Jr. Day - January 18, 2021

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is remembered as one of the most influential civil rights leaders, humanitarians and activists in the history of the United States. Dr. King inspired a nation to stand up against segregation, demand equal housing opportunities, livable wages, quality education and health equity.

His work continues. Join us in honoring his legacy.

January 18, 2021 marks the 26th anniversary of the day of service that celebrates Dr. King’s life and legacy. Join Spectrum Health team members and consider spending it in service to your community by volunteering with a local non-profit.
