In a call for police reform and accountability and to mobilize voters for the November elections, the NAACP will lead a “2020 Virtual March on Washington” on August 28 with civil rights leaders, activists and families of those who have died at the hands of law enforcement. August 28th marks the 57th anniversary of the March on Washington, when Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech. 

The virtual march begins at 5 pm PT on Thursday, August 27, with musical entertainment and comments from young activists and will be carried on television and via social media platforms. 

Starting at 8 am PT on August 28, Martin Luther King III will lead the march in tandem with a socially-distant, in-person march that will take place in Washington, D.C. Witness and virtually join this event via TV and social media to help revitalize and recommit to the dream Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. defined back in 1963.

The event will conclude at 6 pm PT with memorable musical performances and an inspiring keynote address.
