In 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and addressed a crowd of marchers with words that would go down in history: “I have a dream”. Now, 57 years later, people take to the streets of Washington D.C. to march to the beat of this same dream, demanding for racial justice once more. As we have seen by the recent senseless shootings of Jacob Blake and Trayford Pellerin, our nation is still broken and plagued with hate, discrimination, and intolerance. Today, we stand in solidarity with those in the March on Washington, and this resource guide provides ways in which we can walk the walk alongside them.
