Opportunity Details

Writing Hope into Our World At Home Project

Join us from home to celebrate MLK Day by writing a letter of encouragement, support, or thanks to the organization or nonprofit of your choice. You are welcome to write to a social justice organization in Santa Cruz County or across the nation! This letter-writing campaign is inspired by Martin Luther King's letter from Birmingham Jail.

In his letter, he shined a light on the importance of standing with social justice everywhere because, “Moreover, I am cognizant of the interrelatedness of all communities and states. I cannot sit idly by in Atlanta and not be concerned about what happens in Birmingham. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

Feel free to research an organization of your choice and send an email of praise or an old-fashioned handwritten letter by mail. 

Here a list of organizations that you can send a letter to!

Civic & Community, Other
Homeless, LGBT (Lesbian, Gay,Bisexual,Transgender), People with Disabilities, Other
At Home Volunteer

Age Minimum (with Adult): 10+, Minimum Age:18+
