Countdown to Commitment March

Momentum for the Commitment March on Friday, August 28, 2020 is gaining steam, with thousands of Americans already pledging to meet National Action Network in Washington, D.C. to call for police accountability reform on the heels of the 2020 presidential election. 

The Commitment March will take place on the 57th anniversary of the historic March on Washington, where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his iconic "I Have a Dream" Speech. Announced by Reverend Sharpton during George Floyd's memorial, the day-long gathering is co-convened by the eldest son of Dr. King, Martin Luther King, III.

This intergenerational inclusive day of action will demonstrate our advocacy for comprehensive police accountability reform, the Census, and mobilizing voters for the November election. You can register to attend, find details about organizing a bus, secure lodging and sign up to become a volunteer by clicking here.

Sharpton: It’s Time To Recommitment to the Strength of Black Women

Rev. Al Sharpton, civil rights activist and president of the National Action Network, was just a teenager when Ed Lewis, founder of ESSENCE, came to Operation Breadbasket to share his idea of building a magazine for Black women. Though just a young organizer at the time, Sharpton revealed at the ESSENCE Festival of Culture that he was intrigued by Lewis’s desire and commitment to uplift and showcase the ‘beauty, intellect and the depth of our women.’ Now, Sharpton says, it is time to recommit to that mission,” reported ESSENCE in a profile featured this week.
