Obama calls for national day of service

December 17, 2008

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the presidential inauguration, President-Elect Obama is calling for a national day of service on Monday, January 19th. Here’s what the New York Times says:

The Presidential Inaugural Committee is putting the wheels for the project in motion with calls and e-mails to national service organizations. The committee is reaching out to organizations of all sizes and ideologies, including faith-based groups, unions and businesses as well as political groups — from Moveon.org on the left to Focus on the Family on the right — to motivate their members to participate.

Do you all know of any activities planned in the South Asian American community to celebrate this historic occasion? Do you have any plans for service on that day?  Please e-mail us or post a comment here to announce any events you’re planning or attending.
