Inclusive Service Projects for MLK Day

From the National Service Inclusion Project:

MLK Day LogoToday, more than ever, projects are designed using principles of universal design, accessibility and accommodation strategies so that all people can serve. For example:

In Morrisville, NC the “Building a Ramp Into the Community” project will be underway.  The Durham County Affordable Housing Coalition (DAHC) and Durham Habitat for Humanity and Merck have partnered with triangle MLK Day of Service to build ramps in the Durham community. Service members include 12 seniors and people with disabilities. 

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service sponsored by the University of Iowa’s Civic Engagement Program encourages the participation of people with disabilities and publicizes the availability of accommodations on their “Days of Service” website.
