March for DC voting rights.

The Washington Post writes, “On this day in 1862 President Abraham Lincoln signed an act that ended slavery in the District of Columbia. It’s a date that D.C. residents hold dear, and so it’s appropriate that it serve as a vehicle to end another injustice. Today, hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people will march on Congress to call attention to the disenfranchisement of this nation’s capital city.” Find out more about the march HERE.
