With drummers from IDEA Charter School leading the way, Washington, D.C., residents embark on a day of service to honor Martin Luther King Jr. on January 21, 2008. The march for service led from the District Building to the Community for Creative Nonviolence, where volunteers painted and cleaned the facility, which is the largest homeless shelter in the country. About 20,000 people in the District of Columbia participated in nearly 150 service projects in honor of the slain civil rights leader.
