In 1994, Congress designated the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service.

Each year, the Corporation for National and Community Service honors Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s legacy by asking Americans to take action by helping their neighbors and communities on the King holiday.
