Georgia Alums, in conjunction with the Georgia Commission on Service and Volunteerism, is participating in MLK, Jr. Day of Service activities across the state of Georgia.  Throughout six pre-determined regions in Georgia, AmeriCorps alumni will gather at senior citizen centers to help spread the Seat for Social Justice project across the state of Georgia. 
A Seat For Social Justice serves as a strong symbolic reminder of the challenges many U.S. citizens have faced in the fight for civil rights.  Alumni will work together with current members and seniors to create a seat (see below for an example) that will serve as the signature MLK Day activity for the Fanin County Senior Center.  Upon completion of the Seat, AmeriCorps Alums will present the seat to the Fanin County Seniro Center, and then use it to lead a discussion about the seniors' experiences during the Civil Rights Movement  Other activities will include senior blood pressure checks and a blood drive.
