Thousands Rally for Voting Rights on Anniversary of March on Washington

HeadlineAug 30, 2021

Thousands marched in Washington, D.C., and in cities across the country Saturday, the 58th anniversary of the March on Washington, to demand the protection of voting rights. Demonstrators called out the onslaught of voter suppression bills around the country and called on lawmakers to end the filibuster to protect voting at the federal level. LaTosha Brown, co-founder of Black Voters Matter, spoke at the Make Good Trouble Rally in front of the Lincoln Memorial.

LaTosha Brown: “This ain’t just a moment for us to say how we’re going to protest. This is the moment for us to really think about how we’re going to transform this nation. And the transformation starts with us, where we decide that all human beings deserve to be treated with dignity and respect!”
