Starbucks has broadened its equity and inclusion efforts just ahead of MLK Day. As a part of its latest initiative to support more Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC), the renowned coffee company has created a way for Starbucks partners, both employees and customers, to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. just ahead of Monday’s holiday. The efforts further Dr. King’s commitment to both service and belonging. Kicking off on Monday, Jan. 17, Starbucks will provide three virtual volunteer opportunities with organizations that include Junior Achievement, MENTOR, and City Year. All three nonprofits are also recipients of The Starbucks Foundation Grants that were launched to support BIPOC youth.
