The Million Man March was the gathering of millions of African American men in Washington D.C. on October 16, 1995. On that day, men from all walks of life came together in unity, exchanging knowledge and ideas. For many the march was a catalyst that jump started a surge in civic engagement and community activism. 

In our latest involvement, we decided to take a trip to Washington D.C. to stand in solidarity with all of our black brothers and sisters who have fallen victim to the recent wave of violence and injustice by our law enforcers at the 20th anniversary of the original Million Men March. The march brought together people from all ethnic backgrounds to discuss not only police brutality but how each of us can help make our communities better. 

"We encourage you all to never turn a blind eye to the recent targeting of young people of color. This march represents more than the acknowledgment of bad things that happen in our communities. It represents the opportunity to move forward together as people of color to receive justice." - Lawal B.
