Martin Luther King Day of Service – Girard College – 20th Anniversary

This year is the 20th Anniversary of MLK Day of Service in Philadelphia. It will be PPL’s 3rd year as photo volunteers. We look forward to working together as a group. All participants will be tasked to capture the spirit of the event being held at Girard College (plus others locations in Philly to be announced), in remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King.

On the 52st anniversary of the historic 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom led by Dr. King, over 110,000 volunteers are expected to serve in over 1,500 projects in the January 19th annual Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service, the largest King Day event in the nation.

Global Citizen organizes the Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service and runs MLK365, a year-round program that promotes sustainable civic engagement, ongoing volunteer opportunities, and educational programs.

We will separate into groups and cover the event, lead photographers will be assisting those seeking instruction.

This will be a great opportunity to begin learning the art of candid photography.

All members are highly encouraged to participate, especially those who are experienced and willing to take on the role of lead photographers.

More details will follow as we get closer to the event. And we will have an “in depth planning discussion” at our monthly meeting on January 9th.
