Rev Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service takes place each year on the third Monday in January, and this year it falls on Monday, January 16, 2023. MLK Day is a day intended to honor a noteworthy leader of the 1960’s Civil Rights Movement, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This day is also intended to inspire and encourage individuals to serve and strengthen their communities, by taking action to combat our nation’s most pressing social issues. In volunteering and serving our communities, we help dismantle barriers, by working together with individuals of all ages and backgrounds to build stronger, more accepting communities.
Volunteering and serving are key principles of Cuddy & Feder’s culture and its people. And when the Firm can volunteer and serve in the spirit of MLK Day, such volunteerism and service become even more meaningful. Every year, the Firm supports the African American Men of Westchester’s (AAMW) Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Legacy Youth Awards Program. The program honors the youth of Westchester County who exemplify the spirit of Dr. King’s life and work to keep his legacy alive through their self-sacrificing volunteer activities. The scholarship awards will go to seven students who are beacons of light in their communities. The program is chaired and organized by partner Eon Nichols who is also a board member of AAMW. As the Firm is dedicated to promoting the advancement of diversity both within the Firm and our community, the Firm is proud to support AAMW’s MLK Legacy Youth Awards.
The program will be held at the Sleepy Hollow Convention Center in Tarrytown, NY from 11:30AM-2:00PM.
