Fifty years ago, civil rights activists from across the United States gathered in Washington D.C., for one of the most momentous events of the 20th century. They marched and rallied around a shared message of civil liberty, civil rights, and economic opportunity for all.
In the years since, we have made progress. We have taken great strides in our fight for equality. But the past months have shown us there is still much left to do.
Voting rights remain in danger. Our criminal justice system is anything but "just for all." Too many people in too many communities struggle to find jobs and provide for their families. Too many dreams remain unfulfilled.
So on Saturday, August 24th, we will march again, and you can support the march at home.
Become an NAACP virtual marcher by lending your voice to the 50th Anniversary March on Washington. Support our efforts to continue fighting for civil rights and human rights for all.
The NAACP is America's oldest and boldest civil rights organization. We work to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.
Protecting and defending voting rights, fixing our criminal justice system, and promoting economic opportunity for all will fundamentally change our communities for the better.
