Upcoming Discussion: The Root on Day of Service

Natalie Hopkinson, associate editor of The Root, and Steve Coleman, founder of Washington Parks and People, will be online Wednesday, January 14 at 12 noon ET to discuss plans for a day of service Monday, January 19 in Northeast Washington's Marvin Gaye Park, sponsored by The Root. (For more information or to sign up, e-mail TheRootDayofService@gmail.com.

The clean-up day in Marvin Gaye Park is part of the "Make it a Day On... Not a Day Off!" campaign, which encourages people to spend Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday volunteering in their communities. In addition to answering questions about The Root's service project, Hopkinson and Coleman will welcome comments about your plans for the MLK Holiday, and about the burgeoning "greening the ghetto" movement, which was recently featured in The New Yorker, and which seeks to create jobs, reduce crime, educate young people and promote public health through the renovation of urban green spaces.

You can submit a question or comment in advance or during the discussion, or read the transcript afterward.
