New York, NY—Fifty years after the Great March on Washington great progress has been made to secure racial justice, but economic difficulties for millions of people still plague the nation. Labor, civil rights and religious organizations will gather in Washington, D.C on Saturday to commemorate the 1963 march by rallying and marching for greater economic opportunities. Billed as the “Action to Realize the Dream March & Rally,” contingents of organized labor from New York will be boarding buses before dawn to drive and arrive at the Lincoln Memorial, followed by a march to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. Locals from the United Federation of Teachers, American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees and 1199SEIU Healthcare Workers East are among the participants.
