Make Good Trouble Rally in TWO DAYS – August 28, 2021! Volunteers Needed in DC!

Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference, Inc.
With Vision… By Faith… Through Action
We’re getting ready to make some good trouble…
Are you with us?
We’re joining forces with dozens of national advocacy organizations for the Make Good Trouble Rally on Saturday, August 28, 2021, where we’ll convene thousands at the Lincoln Memorial for a day of speakers, performances and demonstrations.
Fifty-eight years ago, the first March on Washington took place at the Lincoln Memorial. There, John Lewis encouraged Black Americans to fight on in the quest for equality. At the Make Good Trouble Rally, we’re continuing his call by uniting Black and Brown communities together to demand that our elected officials take action to create policies that reflect the will of the people.
The Make Good Trouble rally seeks to amplify multiple intersectional issues central to protecting Black and Brown communities, including:
  1. Restore Voting Rights
  2. Grant DC Statehood
  3. End the Filibuster
  4. Realize Reparations and Bring #HR40 To The Floor
  5. Raise the Minimum Wage to $15, Invest in Workers and Cancel Student Debt
  6. Re-imagine Public Safety and End Mass Incarceration
  7. Commitment to End Gun Violence and Fund Peace
  8. Reform Immigration & Create a Pathway to Citizenship for Undocumented People
  9. The War Against Women, Classism, Discrimination, Hate and Phobias of All Kinds
  10. Reverse Climate Change and Build a Green Economy
In the spirit of John Lewis and the original March on Washington, we will come together in love and power with the knowledge that no one will fight for our people like we will.
There are many ways to participate:
  • Join us. Participate virtually or in-person at the upcoming “week of action” events or at the “Good Trouble Rally” on August 28th at the Lincoln Memorial.
  • Share. Share Make Good Trouble’s messages with your network and encourage them to join the movement.
  • Learn more. Educate yourself and your network on voting rights legislation in your state – and on the federal bills HR1 and HR4.
  • Contact your representatives. Congress must pass HR1 and HR4 if we are ever to truly reach a more equitable voting rights system in America. Contact your state representatives and demand immediate action on voting rights.
  • Show your support. Legislation like HR51 (for DC Statehood) and HR40 (for Reparation Proposals for African Americans Act) are important bills for the future of Black and Brown communities. Show your support of these important measures.
Let’s make some good trouble, y’all!
