U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) commemorated Martin Luther King Jr. Day today by joining local leaders and speaking about the value of service at Parkside Elementary School on Chicago’s southside, as part of City Year Chicago’s annual MLK Day of Service. The Senator, who has made community service a hallmark of her public life and has consistently volunteered to help improve her community, supported City Year and community volunteers working to help improve Parkside. Duckworth also joined local leaders at the DuSable Black History Museum and Education Center this afternoon to tour the space and honor the legacies of both Dr. King and generations of Black Americans.
