One thousand ministers are expected to converge on the nation’s capital next month as part of Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Action Network (NAN) Ministers March for Justice. The march will go from the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial to the Department of Justice on Monday, Aug. 28.
The ministers, from all denominations, will convene in Washington, D.C., to reaffirm their commitment to the social justice movement and to stand in solidarity in the spirit and legacy of Dr. King.
Organizers said clergy will hold the Trump administration and Attorney General Jeff Sessions accountable in the wake of an increase in hate crimes, mass incarceration and discrimination.
The faith leaders will unite to send a message that religious communities will not stand by idly as rights are stripped from people in their congregations including voting rights, health care, economic opportunity, criminal justice rights and more.
