Be part of history!
In 1963, one of the largest political rallies for human rights in US history took place, The March on Washington. I took place on August 28, 1963 and was where Martin Luther King Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to deliver his “I Have A Dream” speech encouraging racial harmony during the march.
The march this year is to emphasize the “Dream” has still yet to be fulfilled and the battle for justice is still ongoing. Fifty years after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., delivered his historic “I Have a Dream” speech, leaders from civil rights, organized labor, housing, media, education and politics will once again convene in the nation’s capital to urge Congress to create more jobs, protect voting rights, and to address the litany of recent attacks on immigration and workers’ rights, and equality for the LGBT community.
