MLK Service Day to Focus on Bridging the Digital Divide

Date: 
January 6, 2011

The new civil-rights movement involves bridging the gap in technology, something that will be the major theme of this month's 16th annual Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service, organizers said yesterday.


Social media and digital inclusion will be the focus of this year's event, which is expected to draw a record 75,000 volunteers to more than 1,200 community-service projects on Jan. 17, the 25th anniversary of the King federal holiday.
