Participate in the National Day of Service - Jan 18, 2021

What is the National Day of Service and how is it connected to the Presidential Inauguration?

Every year, on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, thousands of volunteers from across the country unite in service. This year, ahead of the historic and exciting  inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, the Presidential Inaugural Committee will participate in the National Day of Service, modeling the empathic leadership of the Biden-Harris Administration and honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King.

As part of the historic Inauguration, we ask you to take up service in your own community. Together, we will aim to complete more than one million hours of community service to begin doing what we set out to do during the presidential campaign: restoring the soul of the nation and building back better.

When is the National Day of Service?
January 18, 2021, which is also Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Where will service events take place?
In states and territories across the country.

What kinds of service events will take place?
Service leaders, community members, and non-profit organizations from across the country are partnering with PIC to create events that will serve their individual communities. Service events will focus on COVID-19 relief and address issues worsened by the pandemic including hunger, racial injustice, homelessness, mental health, and educational and economic disparities. Many events will be virtual; some will have limited in-person components. All in-person events will include vigorous health and safety protocols and service programs that partner with PIC must strictly adhere to all CDC, state and local guidelines, and safety protocols.
