In just two days, tens of thousands of union members, community activists, students, entertainers, civil and human rights leaders, and concerned citizens will gather for peace, jobs, justice, and education for all Americans in the 10.2.10 One Nation Working Together March.

If you can’t make it to the march, share in the history with friends and fellow PDA members at your own neighborhood watch party.
