Martin Luther King Jr. Day
January 17, 2022
In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we at BGCWLC will be closed for staff training.
Martin Luther King Jr. day is known as a “Day of Service”, as action was an important cornerstone to Mr. King’s work. The US National Service says this holiday is observed as a “day on, not a day off.” MLK Day is intended to empower individuals, strengthen communities, bridge barriers, create solutions to social problems, and move us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a “Beloved Community.” In honor of this, we use this day as a day to train and strengthen our staff in order to do just that.
In an effort to honor Martin Luther King Jr. himself, we would like to share some of his best quotes:
- “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
- “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
- “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
- “The time is always right to do what is right.”
Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!
