March on Washington 60th Anniversary


Our Sacred Right to Vote

Black America is under attack. From Supreme Court decisions on Affirmative Action to states who are attempting to rewrite history, our rights are on the line. 

The March on Washington played a pivotal role in shaping the course of civil rights in America. While progress has been made since then, it's clear that the work is far from over. Voting is power, and it is up to us to hold our elected officials accountable by showing up at the ballot box.

Join us as we continue to fight for true liberation that would allow Black Americans to thrive, together.

Let Us Know You're Coming!

On August 26, we invite advocates from all over the world, from all walks of life, to join us in Washington, DC to call for action.  

Our march will be a continuation, not commemoration, of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's work, the event will bring together global civil rights leaders and partner organizations from across the country to evaluate the progress made to achieve Dr. King's dream while continuing to highlight the work still needed to bring about peace, justice, and equity in the world.

Join us as we continue to march for voting rights, student debt cancellation, and more.

The Historic March on Washington

Originally conceived by renowned labor leader A. Phillip Randolph and Roy Wilkins, Executive Secretary of the NAACP, the March on Washington evolved into a collaborative effort amongst major civil rights groups and icons of the day. 

As one of the largest and most influential civil rights groups at the time, our organization harnessed the collective power of its members, organizing a march that was focused on the advancement of civil rights and the actualization of Dr. King's dream.
