The Justice Department isn’t coming to prosecute hate crimes so the black community is going to the Justice Department.
Rev. Al Sharpton, Martin Luther King III, CEO of Realizing the Dream, the National Action Network, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, radio personalities Steve Harvey and Tom Joyner, community leaders, activists and others will march against nationwide racism at the Justice Department on Friday, Nov. 16.
The rally is a cornerstone of the Fall Campaign for Justice which originated as a result of the alarming number of hate crimes and instances of injustice occurring across the country from a noose hanging at Columbia University and swastikas appearing on synagogues in New York, to the Jena 6 in Louisiana. The unprecedented number of incidents of bigotry cannot be allowed to continue and it is time for the federal government to step in and intervene.
Protesters will gather at Freedom Plaza from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. They will then march down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Justice Department, where like the Battle of Jericho, they will circle the building seven times.
Buses are departing from major cities, including Atlanta, Baltimore, Charlotte, Dallas, Detroit, New York City, Philadelphia and Raleigh-Durham. To reserve a seat, click here.
