On August 28th, 2013 we marched. We marched to celebrate and remember the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington and Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream Speech.” It was so powerful to march side by side with so many people from National Avenue Christian Church who care so deeply about justice.
In the unity march, coordinated by many community leaders, we marched to remember King’s dream. Walking together created a renewed sense of King’s vision and dream in our community. After the march we gathered in downtown Springfield to celebrate, remember, listen, and dream.
