Call to Action

Kickoff Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Week on Monday, January 20, 2014, with a day of service, reflection, and dialogue. All Case Western Reserve University undergraduate and graduate/professional students are invited to participate.

The program will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 3 Cleveland Hillel's Auditorium and will include a morning of service followed by interactive and engaging discussions that focus on the shared goal of building a culture of respect, tolerance and integrity on our campus and beyond.
