National Day of Service

Het Amerikaanse Congress heeft voorgesteld om van Martin Luther King Junior holiday, 19 januari 2009, de national Day of Service te maken.

President Elect Barack Obama and General Colin Powell renew the call to service to make the Monday holiday “a day on” instead of a day off.

Van de usaservice.org site:

“The United States is once again at a crossroads and that is why the President-elect hopes to use the occasion of his Inauguration to rally our nation to commit to service in our communities. We are asking for your participation in meeting this challenge.”

“This website is designed to help promote these events and for Americans to make their commitments, build communities, find opportunities to serve and share their results. These can be events that engage people in direct service, or bring people together to reflect on Dr. King’s legacy and how they can commit to becoming more engaged citizens. Please create an event or sign up to volunteer today.”
