Thousands of people protest in Washington to expand voting rights
On the 58th anniversary of Martin Luther King's speech, thousands of people protested in Washington DC.
Thousands of people are demanding more voting rights in the United States.
"Voting rights advocates are demanding federal legislation to protect and expand access to the ballot. They are also calling for D.C. statehood and voicing support for other civil rights and social justice issues, including reparations for slavery, raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour, canceling student debt, reforming immigration, reimagining public safety and ending gun violence and mass incarceration," the Washington Post says about the purpose of MLK march.
A number of protests are planned under the auspices of various activist organizations, including Black Voters Matter.
