FedEx Honors the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
FedEx is joining the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change in Atlanta and a number of other organizations across the U.S. in honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as we approach the 50th anniversary of his assassination. It’s part of a national commemorative campaign known as MLK50.
With Memphis as our global headquarters hometown, FedEx has a deep connection to Dr. King’s legacy, and the company is playing an important role in honoring his contributions while amplifying his message of inclusion, opportunity and service.
Hundreds of FedEx team members are taking part in the Jan. 15th Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service in 12 cities across the country.
Additionally, FedEx is supporting several national MLK50 events and initiatives in the coming months.
We’ll be posting stories of FedEx team members who have surprising connections to the King family and the events of April 4, 1968.
You’ll also hear from team members who will be telling their stories about how their lives are being impacted through their commit to perform 50 acts of kindness or service over the next few months.
And the company’s top leadership will discuss why FedEx is committed to taking part in the MLK50 initiative and why diversity and inclusion have been core principals since the company’s founding in 1973.
We hope you check in on this blog site weekly as we share the many ways FedEx is honoring the memory and the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
