Change starts with conversation—Announcing #MeetupMonday

At Meetup, we believe in the power of community. Meetups foster understanding, empathy, and respect. We want a world filled with real local community, where the power is in people’s hands.

Right now, America needs the power of community more than ever. That’s why, inspired by Dr. King’s legacy, we’re starting #MeetupMonday.

This MLK Day, talk about your dream for America. Tell your story. Meetup with neighbors. For many, these conversations are already well underway. Now it’s time for everyone to be heard and to listen.

In partnership with CNCSPoints of Light, America’s PromiseCitizen University, and others, we invite you to join the #MeetupMonday movement—to take a break from your routine and talk about what’s happening in our neighborhoods, in our nation, and in our lives.

#MeetupMonday officially begins on January 19, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Here’s how you can get involved today:

  • RSVP or start a #MeetupMonday for free at
  • Share ideas, pictures, and video with the hashtag #MeetupMonday to social media.
  • Look at the Discussion Guide compiled by Citizen University to get the conversation started.
