We will gather to pay tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the late John Lewis, on the anniversary of the March on Washington in 1963, when both men spoke, and Dr. King delivered his "I Have a Dream" oration.
Those who gather on this 57th anniversary will stand in a socially-distanced circle and read aloud that speech, just as we did three years ago after the neo-Nazi event in Charlottesville.
Bring a bell, so at the refrain, "Let FREEDOM ring...." you can join in!
We will also honor the late civil rights leader and representative John Lewis by reading the words he wrote for his own funeral about the work to be done in the future. There will be a minute of silence for John Lewis, Dr. King and George Floyd--and others whose names are not so well known.
Please join us!
Democrats Abroad Chapters in Toulouse and Strasbourg will run parallel events on the same day. The event will be held at the Monument to Human Rights in Parc de la Tête d'Or, near the Cité Internationale bus stop.
