*On Saturday (Jan 14), Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network will join other rights groups for the “We Shall Not Be Moved” march, from the National Sylvan Theater, through West Potomac Park via Independence Ave., SW to a rally across from the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial.

C-Span will cover the rally portion from 12 to 2 p.m.

“The 2017 march will bring all people together to insist on change and accountability,” said Rev. Sharpton. “Martin Luther King Jr.’s struggle for civil rights didn’t end with his death, it’s a fight we take on each day. The political players may change but our goals stay the same. Donald Trump and his administration need to hear our voice and our concerns.”
