The People’s Organization For Progress (POP) has a bus going to the March On Washington on Saturday, August 26, 2023, departing 5:00am from 15 So. Orange Ave in Newark, NJ.
“We still have seats available on the bus. Those who want to go should contact us as soon as possible,” stated Lawrence Hamm, Chairman, People’s Organization For Progress. “POP supports and urges people to attend the 60th Anniversary March On Washington. If there was ever a time we need to protest, now is that time.”
The group is one of many that is taking bus loads of people to the protest. The march is spearheaded by Rev Al Sharpton and his National Action Network, and is supported by a broad coalition of social justice organizations.
“We are going to the march to raise our voices and demonstrate our opposition to those efforts in this country to eradicate the hard won gains of the civil rights and social justice movements that were made since the 1963 march,” said Hamm. “There are are reactionary forces in the United States that want to drag us back and turn back the clock to an era that existed before the civil rights movement. We are going to Washington to tell them that we won’t go back without a fight.”
“We see this march as a clarion call to action. When we return from the march we will be inspired and reinvigorated to carry on the fight for racial, social, and economic justice all over America,” Hamm stated. “We will rededicate ourselves to the elimination of racism, inequality, poverty, and war. We will return more determined than ever to build a movement to make freedom, equality, justice, prosperity and peace a reality for all in this country.”
