MLK Jr. Day

MLK National Day of Service | Jan 19

last year's MLK Day group

A message from the Franklin Park Coalition: 

"Neighbors, friends, young people, and families join us as we honor the legacy and mission of Martin Luther King Jr. Engage in conversation about why civic engagement is fundamental to our communities and how issues surrounding race continue to impact us today. Afterwards, help the Franklin Park Coalition continue efforts to restore Franklin Park's 220-acre forest and keep trash out of this important community greenspace."
Bring a water bottle and a bag lunch. We'll have all the tools. Wear layers and shoes you are comfortable wearing in the park.
