CHICAGO, IL – On August  24th , 2013, The Chicago Southside National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) will join thousands from around the country in Washington, D.C. for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.

Rose Joshua, Chicago Southside NAACP President is making the appeal for you to get on the bus with us to Washington, DC to reignite the flame of hope ignited by Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech 50 years ago.

The NAACP asks that you “Stand with us as we answer the call to action in the name and honor of Emmett Till, Rosa Parks, Dr. King, and Trayvon Martin.”

The rally will begin at 8:00 A M, the Lincoln Monument will once again be the site of a unified gathering of souls rededicating themselves to standing for trust, justice, and equality for all. After a short program, we will march to the beautiful monument erected for Dr. King. 

Civil rights, labor, immigrant rights leaders as well as social justice organizations will speak after the march concludes.

Act NOW, reserve your place in history or help sponsor someone less fortunate than you, to take this history-making journey. Round trip transportation on a luxurious bus and one night’s double occupancy at a nationally known motel chain is only $250 per person. Renew, reunite, and remember the dream. Ride with us on the bus August 23rd through the 25th.
