Honoring Dr. King's legacy
Volunteer with the ANSWER Coalition on Jan. 21 at the Inauguration in Washington, D.C.
Be a volunteer with the ANSWER Coalition on January 21st at the Inaugural Parade in Washington, D.C. We need your help and you can make a difference.
Join us in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 21, the day of the Inauguration and the day remembering the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King, at Freedom Plaza and along the Inaugural Parade route.
Be prepared to get up early and dress warmly. You will work hard but you will have the satisfaction of making a difference.
We are making sure that the demands and needs of the people are visible. We are demanding a massive jobs program, a moratorium of home foreclosures and a cancellation of student debt to the banks that caused the economic crisis that plunged millions into poverty.
We are also demanding an end to the Military-Industrial Complex, which drains nearly $1 trillion a year for war, invasion and occupation.
We will be holding banners and signs condemning the increasingly common practice of drone assassinations in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. Drone strikes are war crimes. The U.S. president – whoever holds the office – has no legal right to establish a secret kill list and determine who lives and who dies. More than 3,000 people have been murdered by U.S. drone attacks.
Dr. King was a fighter for the people. One cannot truly honor his name and simultaneously pursue political policies that favor the banks, the elites and the Pentagon over the unemployed, students and the elderly.
Dr. King agitated, organized and mobilized the people to hold all the politicians accountable. Let’s maintain his legacy by having the strongest possible presence on the Inaugural Parade route.
If you can’t join us in Washington, D.C., as a volunteer on Jan. 21, you can make a difference by making an urgently needed financial donation today to pay for placards, banners, leaflets and the other expenses associated with a major activity.
