Commitment March On The National Mall

Justice, equality and police reform the themes today from the National Mall as thousands have gathered for the Commitment March.

Participants marched to the Martin Luther King memorial and then settled at the Lincoln Memorial where speakers  include Al Sharpton, Martin Luther King III and those whose family members died in police involved incidents.

Due to COVID-19 concerns, attendees are required to wear face coverings and are encouraged to wear gloves and practice social distancing.  There will be temperature checks.  Any buses bringing people in from high risk coronavirus areas in the U.S. will be turned away.  WHUR’s Harold Fisher is on site offering live reports.

Today marks the 57th anniversary of the March on Washington where Martin Luther King, Jr delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech.
