We are heeding the call.

Dr. King’s family, Martin Luther King III, Arndrea Waters King, and Yolanda Renee King – along with faith leaders, civil rights leaders, and voting rights advocates across the country – have called on people across the country to demand passage of voting rights legislation and access to the ballot box this year on Martin Luther King day.

Host an event

No matter where you live, you too can heed the call by hosting or attending an MLK Day event on January 17th where together, we will demand our elected officials pass the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.
