“Sixty years ago today, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and leaders of the Civil Rights Movement led the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, marking one of the most significant demonstrations for justice and equality in our nation’s history. Six decades later, Black people and other marginalized communities in this country are still fighting for equal rights, economic opportunities, and freedoms that have been denied for far too long. As we reflect on the progress that we have made, and the long journey still ahead to fulfill our vision of freedom that our ancestors sacrificed to help achieve, we must be clear-eyed about what it will take to overcome the systemic racism that permeates our country. As Dr. King said in his iconic “I Have a Dream” speech, now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. We must move forward in our march towards justice and equity, with our goals set on winning the rights and opportunities that Dr. King and civil rights leaders fought so hard to achieve. Until his dream for racial and economic justice is fully realized, our work is far from done.
