Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2021

Observing MLK Day should be more than just a day off work or school. So, in the teaching spirit of Dr. King, United Way has joined with YWCA Greater Pittsburgh to host a virtual forum for your family to engage in meaningful discussions about social justice, learn practical skills and encourage a more inclusive culture. Sign up for this lively, positive online event that will bring greater significance of MLK Day for your family. We will have two breakout sessions for you to choose, each led by highly experienced, engaging experts in the field.

"Service to others begins with teaching the importance of service to our kids."
