Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Action

This Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (Jan. 17, 2022) the League will join the King family and civil rights organizations in calling for “no celebration without legislation.” This day of action will call on President Biden and Congress to deliver on voting rights now, because Dr. King’s legacy cannot be celebrated without a call for voting rights legislation. Check out this social media toolkit to spread the word, and raise the call for voting rights at MLK Day celebrations in your area. Please note that this toolkit is not owned by LWV and so may contain language with some partisan leanings. As you utilize this tool, use your best judgment to alter suggested language through our nonpartisan lens.
