On the holiday that shares a namesake with UC Davis’ King Hall, Kevin Johnson, dean of the UC Davis School of Law, shared this message and the above video on social media:
King Hall remains deeply committed to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s mission of social justice. This year, UC Davis School of Law will hold a Day of Service and Celebration in observation of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. The School of Law, the Black Law Students Association, and the UC Davis MLK Day Working Group have organized a morning of community service. Volunteers will assist Fourth & Hope, a facility in Woodland that provides services to the unhoused population (I will be there bright and early). At King Hall, volunteers also may serve deferred action (DACA) recipients needing assistance.
