Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day: Ways to Honor His Legacy

There are many ways we can celebrate the legacy of this inspirational civil rights leader.

 

Parades and  other public events may not take place this year, but acts of service and kindness will honor and show respect for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s achievements.

 

And if your schedule cannot  accommodate a timed online event, you can remember Dr. King by watching one of the many movies and documentaries devoted to his life and work.


Try feature films like Ava DuVernay’s Selma, with David Oyelowo as King, or Clark Johnson’s Boycott. Documentaries include the new MLK/FBI and John Lewis: Good Trouble, both streaming as part of the Cinematters: NY Social Justice Film Festival, as well as King in the WildernessEyes on the Prize, and King: A Filmed Record... Montgomery to Memphis—all available online.

VIC-Valley InterCommunity Council provides nutritionally balanced meals to mature adults, families, and individuals throughout the San Fernando Valley through various nutrition programs.

There is truly something for everyone, from those unable to prepare meals due to a recent hospital visit to homebound individuals, to adults looking for a social dining atmosphere. 

VIC-Valley InterCommunity Council also provides transportation services, case management, health and wellness activities, social and recreational events and a Meals on Wheels service. 

As our world changes, we are called to new and creative ways to express our values in the world, to respond to the sign of the times, and to make our services and programs even more relevant.

For VIC, these values represent inclusiveness, justice and respect for diversity. We are in the process of exploring new ways to expand the care that we provide to seniors and caregivers in our Adult Centers; new ways to creatively build the capacity of our senior centers so that they are able to provide services and programs to a changing generation of seniors; and new ways in which we can continue to build bridges within our community to foster peace, harmony and unity in these challenging times.
