Los Angeles March and Rally
Saturday, Aug. 24, 8 a.m.
Gather at 3838 W. MLK Blvd.
Rally at Leimert Park
August 2013 is the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Five decades ago, more than 200,000 people gathered in the nation’s capital to demand civil and voting rights legislation and to win more jobs, better healthcare, and an end to Jim Crow segregation. Things have changed, but the struggle isn’t over yet.
This month, SEIU is commemorating the March on Washington by mobilizing for a mass rally in D.C., along with local events across the country. In Los Angeles, SEIU 721 members are working with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and the LA County Federation of Labor to honor the anniversary and push for continued change: more good jobs, restoration of the Voting Rights Act, commonsense immigration reform, healthcare for all, and an end to all forms of bigotry and discrimination. Come out to the March and Rally, and bring your friends and family.
“Our members are on the forefront of the struggle for social and economic justice. We’ve got to demand more progress from our elected leaders on these issues we care so much about. By marching together, we’ll unite once again to realize Dr. King’s dream.”
-Linda Dent, SEIU 721 Vice President
