Join hundreds of social justice professionals, activists and community leaders in Washington, D.C., this weekend for the 2019 AFL-CIO Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Civil and Human Rights Conference. In Dr. King's famous 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom speech, he told a divided nation that we need one another and that we are stronger when we march forward, together. “Now, more than 50 years later in these trying times, his words still ring true,” say conference organizers. “We are in the midst of great political and social unrest. We have witnessed devastating rollbacks and attacks on our rights in recent years. But we have an opportunity to come together, lift up one another and strategize collectively for the future of our dreams.” The agenda includes a town hall, issues forum, participation in the Women's March on Washington, workshops and an awards gala.
