As the LPSC, the piece that we are missing so much this year is the opportunity to be together. We are so sad that we won't be able to gather with our children and work together in service to our community. But as that service component is so important to so many of us on this holiday, we have gathered these ideas of ways that you and your families can spend the upcoming weekend together. (Boring Disclaimer: These are simply suggestions and ideas, no agency is being promoted or endorsed by Lowell or LPSC)
LDC LIFE: MuralsDC51 is a citywide mural art project to promote the District's decades-long quest for statehood. Take a virtual or in person tour of the murals and talk about how the lack of statehood has impacted on the lives of DC's majority Black population, and how that relates to past and future activism.
THIS SATURDAY: Want to set up to become a regular volunteer with an area organization in need? Food and Friends delivers healthy, nutritious meals and groceries to those battling serious illnesses.

TALK ABOUT SOCIAL JUSTICE Looking for another resource to have in depth discussions with your children about various social justice issues? Teaching Tolerance has articles, projects, and other resources to help you do that. Currently, their home page is highlighting resources for teaching Dr King's legacy in the wake of the attack on the Capitol on January 6.
