March for Jobs and Justice and Let Freedom Ring, National Mall
Given the recent acquittal of George Zimmerman, this “March for Jobs and Justice” takes on even greater significance. Indeed, our permit (issued by the D.C. Police Department) to peaceably march on the Department of Justice on August 28, 2013, gives us an opportunity to send a message to Attorney General Eric Holder that we support a Department of Justice investigation into civil rights violations by Mr. Zimmerman.
Participants will assemble at 600 New Jersey Avenue, Washington DC at 8 a.m. and proceed to the United States Department of Labor at 200 Constitution Avenue, then to the United States Department of Justice at 950 Pennsylvania Avenue and ending at a rally on the National Mall. Following the march (time to be determined) President Barack Obama will speak to the nation from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
