More than 500 volunteers took part in GW’s 28th annual MLK Jr. Day of Service and Leadership at projects throughout the D.C. area. Participants contributed about 1,500 service hours at 11 different sites with projects including local school cleanups, creating harm-reduction kits, removing broken glass from park trails and transcribing Freedmen’s Bureau documents. Some volunteers were joined in a project to create math, literacy and social, emotional learning materials for preschoolers by Vice President Kamala Harris, Education Secretary Miguel Cardona and AmeriCorps CEO Michael Smith.

"Thomas Buergenthal visited my Holocaust class @GWtweets today and I’ll never forget it. It was the first time in my life hearing from a Holocaust survivor directly. Research through text is one thing. Hearing directly from the person is another."
