Rally at 8 a.m., Lincoln Memorial, Washington, D.C.
March to the Martin Luther King Memorial

This year we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the historic March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. And yet despite the gains of the Civil Rights Movement, the vision of a racially just society put forward at that March remains a dream. Amidst the murder of Trayvon Martin and the shameful acquittal of Zimmerman, the rollback of the Voting Rights Act, the increasing militarization of police, the rise of mass incarceration, school closings, and disastrously high unemployment rates that disproportionately affect Blacks and Latinos, the struggle for justice continues.
