March on Washington for Jobs and Justice 2013
Lest we forget amidst the glamor and glitz, the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom was a march for jobs and freedom. Today's march is a march for jobs and justice--the full title of the March is important, as it speaks to the continuum of the work that must be done to fulfill our nation's promise. Former presidents Clinton and Carter will speak, as well as John Lewis and a number of others. President Obama is scheduled to speak at 3:05 pm.
