It is time to re-join together!
We are coming up to the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington, where many spoke and sang and rallied for a better world for all. This includes Martin Luther King Jr's "I have a dream" speech. The event itself was on Wed, August 28th, but we know that day was only possible because there was a movement...
What are we doing today for civil rights?
What was it like back then?
What is different (or same) today?
What do we want, and need, to work toward?!
Here are two LOCAL EVENTS to participate in Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington...
