On Saturday, August 24th, activists from all over the country will gather in Washington, DC to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s iconic I Have A Dream speech.
In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down part of the Voting Rights Act and the acquittal of George Zimmerman for Trayvon Martin’s death, it has become clear that our work for racial justice and equity in the country is far from finished. Rev. Al Sharpton and Martin Luther King III have called this “National Action to Realize the Dream” to galvanize the American people to take action.
