CIVIL RIGHTS RALLY SLATED FOR SUNDAY

 


WHAT: March for America: Change Takes Courage        

WHO: Leaders and activists representing faith, labor, civil and immigrant rights communities. Speakers include: Marc Morial, president and CEO, The National Urban League; Ben Jealous, president and CEO, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP);Wade Henderson, Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights (LCCR); Janet Murgía, president and CEO, National Council of La Raza; Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), Congresswoman Yvette Clarke (D-NY) Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.); Cardinal Roger Mahony of Los Angeles;

WHEN: Sunday, March 21, 2010
Interfaith Service: 1 p.m.
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.
