The American Federation of Teachers in Connecticut, the NAACP and other unions and community organizations are looking to pick up the torch lit by those who rallied 50 years ago at the March on Washington. Union members by the busload made their way from Connecticut to the commemorative march on Saturday. Unions like the AFTCT are hoping to use the anniversary to inspire activism.
