Martin Luther King Day

Martin Luther King Day

Every year on the third Monday in January, Americans celebrate Martin Luther King Day. This federal holiday honour’s the life and achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who was a leader of the civil rights movement. The day is usually marked with speeches, parades, and service projects. In some states, it is also considered a day of remembrance, when people reflect on the struggles of the past and the progress that has been made.

Why not mark this day in your care setting to honour one of America’s most important leaders.
