Join us to March for the Dream on August 24!
This month marks the 50th anniversary of the historic March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. In 1963, the March on Washington was the largest mass protest in American history when and women and men, young and old from all different backgrounds came together to express their hopes for freedom, justice and change.
The work that began 50 years ago continues today in light of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision this June to gut the Voting Rights Act by removing one of its key enforcement mechanisms. The Court’s decision erased fundamental protections against racial discrimination in voting that have worked to protect our democracy for over 40 years.
