Open Call to Join “Black Lives Matter” Contingent in 2015 MLK March In order to reaffirm his vision of social change, this year’s march will have a “Black Lives Matter” contingent, bigger than any one organization or coalition, to show that Atlanta’s communities are unifying around a deeper commitment to justice and liberation for Black people, people of color, and all people.
We also affirm Dr. King’s commitment to using the myriad political, media, direct action, and education tools we have available to create structural change in our lifetime.
