MLK Day of Service and Advocacy
Monday, January 15, 2024

Cabrini University will commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2024 with opportunities for service, advocacy, and learning.

Students will leave campus to serve with organizations such as the Joy of Sox, the Norristown Area School District, and St Patrick’s Church. Other students will remain on campus to “Fill a Bag” for Face to Face, a nonprofit organization that supports families in need of assistance.

Cabrini faculty and staff will also offer several workshops in alignment with this year’s national MLK Day theme, Shifting the Cultural Climate through the Study and Practice of Kingian Nonviolence.
