50th Anniversary of the March on Washington

Join Us in Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington.

50th anniversary march

WHERE: Terry Schrunk Plaza (SW 3rd Ave and SW Madison St)

WHEN: August 24th (10am)

WHAT: March and Rally: The rally will focus on seizing this opportunity to organize around civil rights and demand that systematic injustices and inequities are addressed.

This event will coincide with the national event in Washington, D.C., bringing together local activists & communities in solidarity with the ongoing Civil Rights movement.

The issues that compelled the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, including lack of economic opportunity and police brutality, are still the pressing issues for communities of color and LGBT people of color today.

The commemorative march will begin at 10am on August 24th, at Terry Schrunk Plaza and we will march to South Waterfront Park, where the rally, speakers, and music will begin at 1pm.
