Each year we commemorate the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a truly collaborative community project that encompasses the concept of individual community members coming together for a greater cause – and we do it through art. Art bridges divides, opens dialogue, and creates understanding – all three of these are essential in working towards diversity, access equity, and inclusion. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s words “If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way” serve as the blueprint for volunteerism and learning through service.
Participating companies and their employees experience the importance of volunteering to support underserved and economically challenged communities who have been impacted not only by the pandemic but also by systemic inequalities. We believe this project unites our communities through volunteerism and honors the legacy of Dr. King.
