United Way hosts virtual reading honoring Martin Luther King Jr’s legacy

SAULT STE MARIE – Every year, AmeriCorps is committed to maintaining Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy by encouraging volunteer service in every community across the nation. Along with thousands of other organizations across the nation, United Way of the Eastern Upper Peninsula’s Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) invites the EUP to safely come together to honor King’s legacy of community service with a virtual reading.

Throughout his life, King stressed the importance of serving your community but also noted that service doesn’t have to be physical. Action starts with conversation and RSVP is starting a conversation on the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in our rural communities throughout the EUP. This reading will be done by one of our AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP Volunteers. Whether you are home with your children or are a teacher with a room full of students, we invite you to take a quick break in your day and join us for a virtual reading of “Change Sings: A Children’s Anthem” by Amanda Gorman.

Although the book is targeted to children, we encourage anyone to join in on the conversation on Monday January 17th, 2022 at 10 am. Please follow United Way of the EUP on Facebook for updates and information. If you’d like to join us, the virtual reading can be accessed at the zoom link provided (case sensitive): https://bit.ly/EUP-MLK
