Description

On Monday, January 20, Abington Friends School will host Let Your Life Speak: King Day of Service & Social Justice Symposium. For many years we have brought the community together for an inspirational day of service on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and worked with volunteers from across the region on behalf of those in need. This year, for the first time, we are expanding the day to include a social justice symposium to further embrace Dr. King’s vision and mission. In addition to service projects, the day will include workshops, a panel on navigating local politics, a resource fair and a special closing program.

All are welcome. Please join us to celebrate the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.—Let Your Life Speak!
