Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL)
Rally at the Lincoln Memorial
Followed by March to the King Memorial
Next Saturday, Aug. 24
On August 28, 1963 hundreds of thousands joined the historic March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Organized by A. Philip Randolph and other prominent civil rights leaders like Bayard Rustin, the demonstration was one of the largest in U.S. history and dealt a serious blow to Jim Crow segregation. It was at this protest that Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.
To mark the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, the National Action Network and Martin Luther King, III are co-convening a demonstration to continue the battle for jobs, justice and freedom. They are joined by the MLK Center for Social Change, National Urban League (NUL), National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), National Coalition on Black Civic Participation (NCBCP), American Federation of Teachers (AFT), Service Employees International Union (SEIU), American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees (AFSCME), United Federation of Teachers (UFT), 1199 SEIU: United Healthcare Workers East, A. Philip Randolph Institute (APRI), Southern Christian Leadership Conference.
