Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a day of commemoration that honors Martin Luther King Jr. and his role in the Civil Rights Movement, which began right here in Alabama.
One of the best ways to honor MLK and his legacy is to give back to your community. The Mobile City Council & Mobile United’s Natural Resources Committee make it easy to give back this MLK Day with an outdoor cleanup all across Mobile on January 15th.

MLK Jr. Day of Service
This year, Mobile United & the Mobile City Council have made an even larger effort to clean up the city by having one cleanup location in each of Mobile’s 7 districts, meaning there’s a cleanup location close to home.

- Check-in starts at 8:30, but the cleanup begins at 9
- What to bring:
- Clothing you can move around in & don’t mind if they get dirty
- Shoes that can get muddy
- Water bottles/granola bars

- Safety vests
