Repair the World New York has an incredible weekend of programming planned over our MLK Weekend of Service. This week, we are inspired by the words of Amanda Gorman:

We hope you will sing along with us as we show up to serve Friday January 14 - Monday January 17. These projects are generously made possible by UJA Federation of NY.
