WHEN: Sunday, March 21, 2010

Rally: 2 p.m. - 5 p.m.
March to RFK Stadium: 5 p.m. 

WHERE: National Mall, 7th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 

WHY: In less than a week, tens of thousands of people from all over the country will gather at the National Mall reminiscent of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963.  The March for America is an opportunity for communities of color to come together at a time when unity is necessary to push for opportunity and real change in Washington on two critical interconnected issues—putting America back to work and movement on comprehensive immigration reform.

We'Â’re calling on Washington to take bold action in solving the problems that brought us together in voting for change.
