March On for Voting Rights Phoenix

Start: Saturday, August 28, 2021 9:00 AM

March On for Voting Rights is a mass mobilization to demand that elected officials stop hijacking democracy, denounce voter suppression and ensure fair, easy access to the vote for all. On August 28, the 58th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic March on Washington, we will march on cities across America to demand that the vision of MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech be deferred no longer. We invite all Americans who believe in the power of democracy and free elections to join us. Marches will take place in states where voter suppression efforts are already imperiling our democracy: Atlanta, Georgia; Miami, Florida; Phoenix, Arizona; Houston, Texas; in Washington, D.C.; and across the country.

The Phoenix MO4VR team will host a celebratory experience at Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church.
