1,000 Ministers to March on Washington

Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Action Network Spearheading Event

On August 28 at 10 a.m., ministers from 31 states and every denomination will take part in a march from the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial to the Department of Justice on the 54th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s March on Washington. 

The ministers will convene to reaffirm their commitment to the social justice movement and to stand in solidarity in the spirit and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

In addition, the participants intend to send a clear message that they will hold the Trump Administration and Attorney General Jeff Sessions accountable in the wake of an increase in hate crimes, mass incarceration, and discrimination.
