Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s incredible work as a civil rights and human rights activist continue to inspire us, and we know that our strength comes from our diversity. That's why we're proud to join our T-Mobile Multicultural Network to celebrate MLK Day in ways that honor his legacy as a champion of service to others and a challenger of barriers.
In 1957, MLK issued a stirring call to action, explaining that "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'". Our teams will take this call to heart, volunteering within their communities to remember MLK, with a goal to total over 5,000 service hours across the week. Whether we're painting murals, planning supply drives, or celebrating with community organizations like the Boys & Girls Club, we aspire to the greatness Dr. King spoke of when he said "Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve."
In line with the Multicultural Network's call to connect with the greater community, we'll also have teams marching in MLK parades across the country. We'll continue our commitment to education as well, paying respect to Dr. King's efforts with visits to the King Center and National Civil Rights Museum. You can keep up with us by following the hashtag #TMOMLK across our social media.
Dedicating his life to advance human rights against great odds, to say that Dr. King was a trailblazer would be an understatement. On January 17th, T-Mobile's Multicultural Network will recognize the inspiring stories of some of our own #TMOTrailblazers.
Dr. Jen Welter will keynote our MLK webcast event hosted in Richardson, TX, with insight into the challenges and evolution of her journey as the first female coach in the NFL. Following, a panel of inspiring members of T-Mobile's leadership team will share stories of how they've forged new territory to achieve success. Whether they're the first in their family to graduate from college, achieve a salaried position, or attain U.S. Citizenship, these candid discussions will inspire not only our T-Mobile team members, but any who are looking to overcome obstacles and bring a dream to life.
You'll find these stories at T-Mobile Careers on Twitter, or by following #TMOTrailblazers across our social media platforms. We hope you'll join our Multicultural Network and our T-Mobile team at large in doing bigger things to celebrate of MLK Day this year!
