Justice League NYC​, United We Dream​, and people from across the country gathered in New York City on Monday, April 13, 2015, to march to the nation's capital, stopping in key cities and towns along the route for local rallies and mobilization.

"We are marching to DC to demand Congress act on legislation to end racial profiling, demilitarize our police forces and invest in our communities. We are inspired and moved by young people and others across the country that continue to keep this movement alive in the name of Justice. We now want to see action from the powers-that-be – and it’s time we take the movement to them. Our voices and calls for justice, accountability, transparency, dignity and respect for all communities will ring throughout the halls of Congress. We will be heard. We will demand results.

Together we will march in honor of our heroes in Selma who risked everything to bring progress to Black American communities and strived for equal access to the democratic process for all people. We acknowledge their sacrifices and know that we can only march because of the path they paved for us.

If your organization is willing to join this historic effort, we would like to list you as an Endorser. Please send us the exact name of your organization as you would like it to appear on a website dedicated to the promotion of the March. We also need the name and contact person of someone we can be in touch with for updates and logistics. Please email this information to march2justice@gmail.com.
