Historically, the March on Washington broadened the base of the civil rights movement. The March was not a black action; it was a feat by blacks and whites together, all people. Not just the leaders of the black organizations, but clergy, political leaders, and community spokespeople called for change. UE commemorates the March of Washington through a Symbolic March through campus as a celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and other civil rights leaders of that time.

Rally begins 11:45 a.m., Symbolic March begins at noon at the Meeks Family Fieldhouse.

Led by the UE Black Student Union
Rally Speakers:
Christopher Pietruszkiewicz, President
Rob Shelby, Chief Diversity Officer
Black Student Union Representative
JillAnn Knonenborg, Director of Religious Life
