BACKGROUND:

National Action Network will lead “We Shall Not Be Moved,” marches and demonstrations kicking off on Jan. 14, 2017 in Washington during Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend. The march is planned to commemorate Martin Luther King, Jr., and show that a large base of civil rights leaders, clergy, labor and elected officials are dedicated to continuing the mission of Dr. King. NAN is calling for President-elect Trump and Congress to protect voting and civil rights, access to quality healthcare as well as police reform and economic development and equity. “These marches are crucial because we don’t want anger over the outcome of the presidential election to derail Americans from fighting for civil rights,” said Rev. Al Sharpton, the Keynote speaker and organizer of the March.
