MLK Day of Service Across California
By: Jenn Hatch
"Human progress is neither
automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires
sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate
concern of dedicated individuals." MLK
Across the state- from Davis all the way to San Diego- students went out into the community to serve their community in celebration of MLK.
With seven different events across the state, 55 volunteers went door-to-door, bringing energy education to 312 householdsto help them save energy, the environment and money all at the same time!
A couple highlights from the day were working with Riverside City Councilor to hold an energy education table for kids at a town sustainability fair; having volunteers from UCLA and SMC team up to do energy surveys in Venice Beach, and team Santa Barbara, who had 18 volunteers completed almost 100 surveys!
