Cincinnati activist group joins 50th anniversary of March on Washington

CINCINNATI - A group from the Greater Cincinnati Chapter of the National Action Network is heading to Washington, D.C. to honor the March on Washington on Friday.

It’s been 50 years since the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous “I Have a Dream” speech during the march.

The local group said while much has been accomplishing since then, King’s dream has not been fulfilled and the battle for equality is ongoing.

Organizers said Saturday’s anniversary march will promote awareness of issues such as jobs and the economy, voting rights, worker’s rights, criminal justice issues, women’s rights, immigration and more.
