2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. The focus of this year’s march is national action, with the commemoration of the March on Washington as a springboard for a nationwide campaign designed to take on issues such as poverty, jobs, racial and class inequality, voting rights, and immigration that plague the US in 2013. The initiative is being led by Martin Luther King, III and Rev. Al Sharpton, along with an alliance of prominent advocates of labor, health, housing, education, civil and human rights.
