Volunteerism Our Greatest Human Resource
(Los Angeles, CA) - On Monday, January 17, 2011 Senator Kevin de León joins all of America in marking the 25th anniversary of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday. This milestone is a perfect opportunity for Americans to honor Dr. King’s legacy through a national day of service, "day on, not a day off."
