Mayor Buddy Dyer will work-along with hundreds of community volunteers
along the John Young Parkway corridor in Districts 5 and 6 during the
“Plant Seedlings for Civil Rights” event taking place on the Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr. Holiday held Monday, January 16.
Sponsored by the City of Orlando and Mayor Dyer’s Martin Luther King Jr.
Holiday Commission, the “Plant Seedlings for Civil Rights” event was
created as a day of service to honor Dr. King’s legacy. During the
event, several work stations will be set up throughout the area in an
effort to clean up and spruce up the John Young Parkway corridor between
Church Street and Orange Center Boulevard. Work will consist mostly of
debris removal along the roadside and medians.
Volunteers interested in participating in this day of service should
contact Keep Orlando Beautiful at 407.246.2752 or Green Up Orlando at

As part of his Strengthen Orlando plan, Mayor Dyer has transitioned his
series of work-alongs to focus primarily on community service. Through
leading by example, Mayor Dyer encourages citizens to get involved and
continually give back to their community.
