The national MLK Day of Service was created in 1994 through federal legislation co-authored by former Pennsylvania U.S. Sen. Harris Wofford and U.S. Rep. John Lewis of Georgia, both veterans of the Civil Rights Movement with Dr. King. This legislation was then signed into law by President Clinton.  RSVP here to participate in the Day of Service and Action.
