The Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission is proud to promote the state's official King Holiday events honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Monday, Jan. 20, 2020.
The event is free and open to the public. The 2020 Day of Impact is the largest day of service in the nation honoring Dr. King and will include the following service and arts projects: free bus rides through partnership with Rock Region Metro, band showcase, coat drive, blood drive, free haircuts, vendor showcase, free meals, hygiene kits, health and wellness screenings and an international performing arts showcase. The program will be streamed live by Arkansas Department of Education and AETN at http://video1.aetn.org/adelive.html.
"Dr. King once said, 'Everybody can be great because anybody can serve.' We have rebranded as the Day of Impact to highlight the community service opportunities and outreach that we provide through our various partnership. We commit this day to service and youth involvement to make sure that the next generation of young leaders know about the King legacy of service and how he dedicated his life to making the world a better place," says Executive Director DuShun Scarbrough.
