"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
There are few legacies as impactful as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. A man fiercely dedicated to the pursuit of equality, his words feel even more profound today as the world responds to calls for lasting racial and social justice.
Monday, January 18, marks MLK Day, one of few federal holidays designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities. Our Credo states that "we are good corporate citizens and share our success with the community to make the world in which we work better than it was yesterday." Now, more than ever, society needs us to come together as a force for good, starting with making MLK Day a "day on" as V Team volunteers
Below are volunteer opportunities that support our commitments under our responsible business plan Citizen Verizon and honor Dr. King's life of service and his dream for a more equitable future.
