March On Washington, Grand Rapids

Martin Luther King Jr. famous march on Washington 50 years ago is being commemorated starting today. About 100,000 people are expected to march in the nation's capital. The main event is Aug. 28 and President Barack Obama will be a featured speaker.

Local immigration rights advocates are working to make Dr. King’s dream a reality for immigrant families in need of protection from the broken immigration system. Advocates will march from Lincoln Park on Garfield to the Kent County Republican Headquarters on Lake Michigan Drive. There, they will call on U.S. Representative Justin Amash and all GOP House Members to work to keep immigrant families together with a clear path to citizenship.
