Alternative MLK Weekend

Many an active citizen has been inspired by the great work Martin Luther King, Jr. did for justice. In honor of King's vision of a beloved community, alternative breakers at William & Mary engage in our region every MLK weekend.

Registration is open now until Monday, October 31st.

All MLK alternative breaks span from Saturday, January 14 to Monday, January 16. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to Williamsburg before the start of the trip. We're proud to be able to offer our MLK weekend breaks for free to W&M students, thanks to the generosity of William & Mary families through the Parent's Fund.
