Peaceable Assembly: Perspectives From The March On Washington


On Thursday, August 12, we heard perspectives from participants in the 2020 March on Washington and how the 2021 March scheduled for August 28 relates to broader social justice issues.

In this live Roundtable conversation, participants discussed the personal impact of attending the 57th anniversary of the March on Washington in 2020. Carter Center Human Rights Program Graduate Assistant Josh Griffin and returned Peace Corps volunteer Zach Schreiner shared what motivated them to attend the historic event. They recounted the speeches they heard and described how those speeches motivated them to continue to get in 'good trouble' and fight for social justice. This conversation aims to inspire and encourage people to attend this summer's March on Washington on August 28 and to take action for social justice in their own lives.

We hope you will share your own point of view and experience advocating for justice in the live chat. Forum members may contribute comments or questions during the event. To join, please complete the form under 'Join The Community' at the top of this page.
