You can march with us and the National Nurses United and Progressive Democrats of America. We will gather at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, August 24 at the Albert Einstein Memorial (corner of 22nd St. and Constitution Ave NW).
We march to honor the legacy of the Civil Rights movement and the prophetic vision of Dr Martin Luther King who linked the “the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism.”
We march because the rich and the powerful today, as they did 50 years ago, seek to divide the natural allies in the struggle for racial equity and a more just and peaceful community and world. We know that we must struggle for peace and justice both at home and abroad.
A big march on Saturday will send the message that the movement for peace and justice is alive and growing, not defeated, nor discouraged.
The peace movement will only gain ground as we unite with the movement for racial justice. Dr King was right! Please check out my article on Common Dreams: 50 Years Later: We March on Washington to End Racism, Materialism, and Militarism http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/08/21-3
Jobs, not wars! Join us on Saturday, August 24 at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, August 24 at the Albert Einstein Memorial (corner of 22nd St. and Constitution Ave NW).
If you cannot be with us in Washington, join us virtually on Twitter, our handle is @PeaceAction, and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/peaceaction. We will be Tweeting and posting photos from the National Mall.
For the National staff,
Judith Le Blanc , Peace Action Field Director
