                             SYMBOLISM WITHOUT SUBSTANCE


                Thousands March every January but where are they NOW?!

Organizers of an August 26th planned Washington trip, a Rally and March to commemorate the unveiling of the MLK monument on the National Mall, are disappointed as it appears the Martin Luther King, Jr. Coalition in Cincinnati are going to bypass the historical event.

On the Martin Luther King, Jr. Coalition’s website there is no updated activity and the site asks visitors to check back in the fall of 2012 for details about the 37th Martin Luther King, Jr. Day commemoration, yet there is no mention of the historic monument unveiling. Repeated phone calls to the phone number listed on the website were not returned.

Victoria Straughn, local activist and a Washington DC trip organizer working with the Nation Action Network says, “ Cincinnati is the home of Fred Shuttlesworth a civil rights activist who marched with Dr. King and it would be shameful if Cincinnati has virtually no or very little participation or representation at such an event. We are disappointed that the MLK, Jr. Coalition organizers are silent and have not organized one bus.

Straughn and other Washington trip organizers desire to partner with The Martin Luther King Jr. Coalition and its community partners to fill buses going to Washington. They are also seeking sponsors to help families and youth that cannot afford the full cost of the trip.
