Join young people, poor people, community and workers’ rights activists; occupy veterans and the families of police killing victims from across the region and the country that will be commemorating the 50th anniversary of the historic 1963 March for Freedom and Jobs led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by
MARCHING 41 MILES FROM BALTIMORE, MD
TO WASHINGTON, D.C., on Sat., May 11,
which is the 45th anniversary weekend of the Poor People’s March
Dr. King was to lead before he was assassinated.
When the march arrives in Washington, there will be a PEOPLE’S POWER ASSEMBLY in FREEDOM PLAZA on Sun., May 12, to plan a campaign of action around the demands listed above as well as other demands. Help “occupy” this anniversary and turn it into a rallying call to revive the real spirit of Dr. King that’s so desperately needed today.
There will be vans for those who are not able to walk the full distance. If you cannot participate through the whole weekend of May 11 and May 12, come and participate in part of it.
THE 2013 POOR PEOPLE’S MARCH was initiated by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Baltimore Chapter and the Baltimore People’s Power Assembly. It has been endorsed by hundreds of organizations and activists from around the country.
