DCCC Chairman Steve Israel’s Statement on 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington

DCCC Chairman Steve Israel released the following statement commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington:

“As we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, we come together to celebrate the incredible dedication of those who fought – and are fighting – for civil rights, and we rededicate ourselves to their mission.  

“As we look back on how far we’ve come since that incredible August day five decades ago, we look ahead to the next 50 years. Discrimination and injustice remain, and the landmark Voting Rights Act is imperiled. The sacred right of every American to vote is under constant threat from the Republican Party, but House Democrats will work tirelessly – using every tool at our disposal – to right this injustice and make sure that everyone who is eligible to vote can exercise this right. And as we rededicate ourselves to the cause of justice and liberty for all, we will do our part to help this country realize Dr. King’s dream.”
