This is our chance to do something positive, peaceful, and productive in our communities.
For 63 minutes (starting at 3:00 pm on August 28, 2013) people from across this country are committing themselves to doing something positive, peaceful, and productive in their communities. Take the pledge and stay tuned for updates on what others are doing with their 63 minutes of peace.
We picked August 28th because that was the day that the March on Washington took place. We choose 63 minutes because that was the year of the great March on Washington. We decided on a start time o f3:00 pm because that was the time that Martin Luther King Jr. began delivering the speech that changed the world.
On August 28, 2013 citizens from across this country will converge upon our nation's capital to commemorate and celebrate the historic March On Washington which occurred 50 years ago on August 28, 1963.
