MLK Day Weekend 2023
Since 2006, Boston Cares has celebrated Dr. King’s birthday by bringing the community together through service. The 2023 MLK Weekend will focus on the importance of civic engagement and ways that individuals can influence change in their community, using the Points of Light Civic Circle® as a framework. The Civic Circle helps individuals connect to opportunities and understand that doing good comes in many forms with a framework for pathways to lead, lend support and take action for causes they care about through volunteering, purchasing power, service, voting, working, voice, donating, listening & learning, and social entrepreneurship. Join us January 13-16, 2023 as we celebrate Dr. King's legacy with opportunities learn, serve, and give to our community.
