A Day to Honor the 50th Anniversary of the Historic “March on Washington” Civil Rights RallyDear Friend: Today is a day to reflect and celebrate the progress that has been made and the dreams realized over these last 50 years, as we honor the 50th Anniversary of the Historic “March on Washington” for civil rights. But it is also a day to recommit ourselves to the basic civil rights outlined by Martin Luther King, Jr. and others on this summer day in 1963. We have moved forward as a country over these least five decades, and we now live in a world where more and more minorities are “able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope.” But while we no longer have signs denoted “whites” and “blacks” we do continue to have inequalities from race to race that must be addressed. Fifty years ago, hundreds of thousands of brave souls marched in our nation’s capital demanding basic civil rights for all Americans. The responsibility is upon us to continue to make this ‘dream’ a reality and to uphold the legacy of those who took a stand five decades ago.Sincerely,Orrin Hatch

A Day to Honor the 50th Anniversary of the Historic “March on Washington” Civil Rights Rally

Dear Friend:

     Today is a day to reflect and celebrate the progress that has been made and the dreams realized over these last 50 years, as we honor the 50th Anniversary of the Historic “March on Washington” for civil rights. But it is also a day to recommit ourselves to the basic civil rights outlined by Martin Luther King, Jr. and others on this summer day in 1963.

     We have moved forward as a country over these least five decades, and we now live in a world where more and more minorities are “able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope.” But while we no longer have signs denoted “whites” and “blacks” we do continue to have inequalities from race to race that must be addressed.

     Fifty years ago, hundreds of thousands of brave souls marched in our nation’s capital demanding basic civil rights for all Americans.  The responsibility is upon us to continue to make this ‘dream’ a reality and to uphold the legacy of those who took a stand five decades ago.

Sincerely,

Orrin Hatch
