TOWN HALL MEETING Civil Rights 50 years after the March on Washington, DC

Downtown Radisson Hotel
Rochester, New York

Free and open to the public.

On August 28, 1963 over 250,000 people descended on Washington D.C. to join the March for Jobs and Freedom. People from all walks of life rallied to demand Civil Rights and a Living Wage. A coalition of religious, civil, community, and labor organizations gathered at the Lincoln Memorial to voice the need for change.

50 years later how much has changed? With the repeal of key parts of the Voting Rights Act and consistent unemployment, we must ask, how much has changed? Join a panel of experts, assembled from the similar organizations as those that marched on Washington, to discuss what progress has been made and what regressions we are suffering since this historic march.
