Saturday, August 24, 2013 March on Washington

It's time for another March on Washington - Common Cause:

  • In 1963, hundreds of thousands marched on the National Mall, demanding equal treatment for all Americans. Two years later, the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act were signed into law. When the people spoke, Washington listened.
    • Fifty years later, special interests have captured our democracy and used it to pass extremist laws like “Stand Your Ground”, while the Supreme Court's gutting of the Voting Rights Act has opened the door to unprecedented partisan assaults on voting rights.
      • Join us as we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. With your help, we'll make sure they listen this time too.
        • What: March on Washington
        • When: Saturday, August 24, 8 a.m. - 2 p.m.
        • Where: National Mall Washington DC
        RSVP at Common Cause.
