Led by the Reverend Al Sharpton, thousands march in D.C. for voting rights
Washington, D.C.- Thousands of people gathered in Washington, D.C., and other cities across the country on Saturday to protest a recent slew of legislation that critics say suppresses voter rights, particularly for voters of color and young voters, in many Republican-led states. The event, called the March On For Voting Rights , took place on the 58th anniversary of the 1963 March On Washington when Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his "I Have A Dream" speech. Sunday's event was organized by the Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network and partner organizations. Other events also took place in Atlanta, Miami and Phoenix.
