Reverend Al Sharpton and the families of Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Akai Gurley, and Tamir Rice will be leading a march in Washington, DC tomorrow to call for an end to police violence.
A coalition of civil rights groups led by Reverend Al Sharpton at the National Action Network organized the Justice for All march, which will begin at Freedom Plaza at noon on Saturday and proceed down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol. The march is not expected to have record-setting numbers but will make a strong national statement in support of the ongoing demonstrations against excessive force that have captured the nation. Those participating in the march are calling on Congress to take legislative action to combat racial profiling, and police discrimination and violence.
Charter buses are coming from many cities and states across the East coast for tomorrow’s march. For more information about the march and to learn how to get involved, visit the National Action Network’s webpage.
