According to CNN, Al Sharpton is organizing another March on Washington to mark the 57th anniversary of the civil rights protest originally led by Martin Luther King Jr. “On August 28, the 57th anniversary of the March on Washington, we’re going back to Washington,” Al said during a eulogy at the memorial service for George Floyd, the man who was killed by police officers in Minneapolis on May 25.

“We’re going back this August 28 to restore and recommit that dream [of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.] … We need to go back to Washington and stand up, Black, white, Latino, Arab, in the shadows of Lincoln and tell them this is the time to stop this,” Sharpton said, according to CNN

Al said the upcoming march in August is “going to be getting us ready to vote, not just for who’s going to be in the White House, but the statehouse and the city councils that allow these policing measures to go unquestioned.”
