    "Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve."
    - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.January 19, 2015 marks the 29th anniversary of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday. In 1994, Congress passed the King Holiday and Service Act observing this day as a national day of service - "A Day On! Not a Day Off." For the last ten years, the Waukesha County Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Day committee has taken the lead in planning activities to honor Dr. King's call to service.

    Our mission is to bring all our communities together to celebrate, raise awareness of, and live the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his vision of tolerance, acceptance, unity, peace, and social justice. In partnership with businesses, schools, non-profit organizations, churches, municipalities, and other community groups, we will promote activities which:

    • Provide education,
    • Support service to others,
    • Recognize champions who promote diversity,
    • Bring people together to increase acceptance and understanding.
