On January 16th, 2012 the Ward 8 Martin Luther King Jr. Day Parade will take place and we want folks to join a group marching for DC Statehood. The DC MLK Host Committee will stand up and be heard, so prepare to march with us. Lineup begins at 8:30, parade will kick off at 11am. Wear your red and black MLK/statehood t-shirts and join our contingent. For folks who cannot walk, we will have a flatbed truck, music and of course, the Stand Up for DC Statehood song. Let’s be out there in droves — get your family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, etc. to join in. For more information on the rendezvous point please contact Ann Loikow (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Beverley Miller (email@example.com).
