Each year, during the month of January, the University of Pennsylvania and our surrounding communities come together to commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This commemoration includes a day of service on our campus and in the Philadelphia community from January 2021 and continues with programming and events through February 2021.

We invite your organization to plan a program in conjunction with the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Symposium.
