Join us on Saturday, August 24th, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. as we commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Historic March on Washington. Be a part
of this country's history as we march for Jobs and Freedom!
People from every corner of Santa Clara County are uniting for one momentous day, rallying for a shared message of civil liberty, civil rights, and economic freedom and
opportunity for all. It is empowering and encompasses the ideals of the pioneers of the 1963 March, in that we have to stand up for our future and the future of this
nation by empowering ourselves and our neighbors.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
WE BELIEVE everyone deserves the opportunity to achieve the American Dream - We will be addressing today's civil rights issues, including but not limited to: racial,
social and economic injustice; workers' and LGBT rights as well as Commonsense Immigration Reform, a secure job, a safe home, and a quality education. We seek to transcend
our superficial differences and bring together people of all backgrounds in a common quest for equal opportunity and justice for all.
March starts at 9:30 a.m. (please arrive at 9:00 a.m. so that we can begin the march promptly at 9:30 am.) Rally Point St. James Park - St. James Street &
