March on Washington Anniversary
Burlington, VT, August 28, 2003
Today, Dr. King's dream is being attacked by an administration that seeks to unravel the decades of improvements made on civil rights and gaining equal rights for all Americans. Our civil liberties are under assault, our moral role in the world has been compromised, and we've seen progress on issues like the civil rights and the environment reversed by an administration that seeks to divide us once again by race, gender, sexual orientation, and income. Just as those 1963 marchers changed the course of the country, we must today take another stand to set right the course of American society. We can take our country back, and, as Dr. King said, we must let freedom ring.
