======== COMMEMORATE 50 YEARS OF MARCHING FOR JUSTICE ========================

Dear Friend,

Click here for a downloadable set of commemorative posters for the 50th  
Anniversary of the March on Washington [1]
*Please join United for Peace and Justice in commemorating the 50th  
Anniversary of the March on Washington on August 24th in our nation’s  
capital. [2]* We need a strong peace and anti-war contingent to echo  
King’s words about the inextricable links between racism, poverty and war.  
 Let’s make sure Dr. King’s message is loud and clear on this  
anniversary of the March on Washington and I Have A Dream speech.  Click  
here to read Michael McPhearson’s blog on the significance of this march.

*UFPJ Plan of Action for the 50th Anniversary of the March on  
Washington: **Shining a Light for Peace, Jobs, Justice and Freedom*

We will gather together in Washington DC and in communities across the  
country to commemorate this great march and to renew our commitment to keep  
marching for a just future.  We are taking an action for peace in Washington  
DC on Friday night and we will be making our call for peace, jobs, justice  
and freedom visible throughout the day on Saturday.  We hope you can join  
us.
