A larger-than-life depiction of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. now welcomes clients and visitors to the South Coastal Counties Legal Services’ (SCCLS) Bedford St. office in Fall River.
The image is just a piece of the mural designed and painted by volunteers organized through the University of Massachusetts Office of Civic Engagement. The project was funded through a Martin Luther King Day grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service and culminated a week of service activities involving hundreds of volunteers on the South Coast.
