50th Anniversary March on Washington


130629_7673 MLKThere will be many similarities between the 50th anniversary March on Washington this August 24th, and the original march that took place in 1963.

Thousands of civil rights activists and leaders will convene on Washington D.C., and march for civil rights, civil liberties, voting rights and economic freedom and equality for all.

But one thing will be different. Whereas 50 years ago, those not in attendance could only be with the marchers in spirit, this year, people who can’t make it to Washington will still have a chance to be active participants.

Be a part of our virtual march by sending a message of support through Facebook or Twitter on Saturday.

The NAACP is giving supporters all across the country a chance to be a part of this historic event in their own homes and communities.

And I don’t have to tell you how important it is to help us spread our message. We’ve made so much progress fighting for civil rights and human rights, but there is much work still to do.

I know you’ve been a big part of our work in the past. Help us take another step for freedom and equality. Be a virtual marcher on August 24th:


Thank you, and remember, courage will not skip this generation.

Roslyn M. Brock, Chairman
NAACP National Board of Directors
