MLK?s Family and Civil Rights Leaders Call for Voting Rights March on Washington

Categories: Press Reports

August 28 will mark the anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, the mass rally in Washington, D.C. that brought us Martin Luther King Jr.?s ?I Have a Dream? speech and set the stage for the Voting Rights Act and other civil rights victories in Congress. King?s family and other civil rights leaders are now calling for another mass march on Washington on August 28 that will turn up the heat on Democrats who have so far failed to pass three voting rights bills languishing in a divided Senate.
