Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, Reflection, and Education

Dr Martin Luther King JrMartin Luther King Jr. Day is on Monday, and here at Nebraska Is Home, we like to think of this as a day on rather than a day off of work. It’s a day of service, reflection, and education, as we commit ourselves to fostering a welcoming Nebraska, where everyone feels they belong – no matter their background or country of origin. We feel that building a more just and equitable society is the best way to honor the legacy of Dr. King Jr., a Black man who inspired people to fight against injustice of all kinds.

Here are some events across Nebraska that you can join in the spirit of inclusion and fellowship
