Let’s Not Forget…


 
 

Fifty years ago, Whitney M. Young Jr., president of the National Urban League from 1961-71, worked alongside his fellow civil rights, social justice and labor movement leaders to organize the March on Washington, where 300,000 people gathered to demand jobs and freedom. As America prepares to mark the anniversary of this historic gathering, the Urban League will again mobilize citizens across the nation to gather in Washington, D.C. to continue to press for economic empowerment and justice.

To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, the National Urban League and the Memorial Foundation are hosting the Drum Majors for Justice Celebration in Washington, D.C. on August 23, followed by an Urban League Pre-March Rally on August 24.
