FAIRFIELD — The Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership kicks off its Martin Luther King Jr. Days of Service campaign Monday with “30 Days of Action” through Feb. 18.

Melinda Earp, Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership AmeriCorps VISTA in Marin and Sonoma counties, and Sophia Luna, an AmeriCorps VISTA member, have worked in partnership with AmeriCorps California and California Volunteers to design special Days of Service for 2021.
