NNU Joins National Action to Reclaim MLK’s Dream

National Nurses United, 8/16/13

MLK

Commemorative March for the 50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s March for Jobs and Freedom (Where he delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech.)

Saturday, August 24 in Washington, DC  (one week from today!)

Fifty years ago, hundreds of thousands of activists gathered in Washington, DC to fight for an end to poverty and racism in America. Fifty years later, America still needs our help to heal the wounds of inequality and injustice. Join us for a rally and commemorative march along MLK’s historic 1963 route to bring the Main Street Contract and the call for living wage jobs, equal access to quality education, guaranteed healthcare, a secure retirement, clean and safe housing and a fair taxation system to Congress and the President.

If you can, please join us!

Meet at 9:30 a.m. at the Albert Einstein Memorial (corner of 22nd St. and Constitution Ave NW).

After gathering there we will join other activists at the Lincoln Memorial for a rally program and then march united to the MLK Memorial.

Wear red scrubs if you have them. If not, anything red will do.

We look forward to seeing you in DC,

Deborah Burger & Jean Ross
