Just-Us Bus going to Washington. You going?

Led by Rev. Al Sharpton and National Action Network (NAN), partners in labor, education, civil rights, and the church will march to symbolize the collective struggle for social justice on Saturday, August 27, 2011, just one day before the historic unveiling of the national King Memorial on the National Mall. The pre-rally will begin at 12 (Noon) at Constitution and 17th Streets followed by a March beginning at 1:30pm to the King Memorial site on Ohio Drive, SW and West Basin Drive, SW.

According to Rev. Sharpton: "While there has been significant progress in civil rights and social justice there are still massive attacks upon poor people and workers along with an unfair and unequal distribution of labor. People of color still make up the vast majority of those wrongfully incarcerated and are the largest ranks of the unemployed and those discriminated against in the workplace. We have the poorest health care and the most disproportionate housing and freedom alone does not deliver dignity."

If you are interested in going send an email to this blog, and we'll get you the details, cost, etc.

Also, we plan a rally here locally. If you can't make the trip, surely you'll attend the rally.  We want to hear from you.
