Our annual Martin Luther King Day of Action allows volunteers from across the Kent State community to commemorate Dr. King and his dream of a Beloved Community. Volunteers will have the opportunity to take action on a project in our local community and reflect together on the impact they made and the work that remains to realize Dr. King's vision.

International Women's Day

International Women's Day takes place every March, and we're pleased to be able to collaborate with the Kent State Women's Center to offer a few action opportunities through which volunteers can learn about, support, and empower women in local and global communities. Join us on Wednesday, March 8th, 2023 as we jointly observe International Women's Day with a poster session, a panel discussion, and service projects!
