WATCH: Religious leaders hold ‘One Thousand Ministers March’ to denounce Trump
Religious leaders held a rally at National Mall on Monday to show their opposition to the agenda of President Donald Trump.
The event, dubbed the “One Thousand Ministers March for Justice,” is being held on the 54th anniversary of the March on Washington, where Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his iconic “I Have a Dream” speech.
The event was organized by Rev. Al Sharpton and his organization, the National Action Network.
“Our hope is that when you looked at those Nazis carrying torches talking about ‘You will not replace us,’ we can contrast that with rabbis linking arms with Baptist ministers and Muslims marching in the spirit of Dr. King,” Sharpton told Religion News Service. “They went to Robert E. Lee’s monument. We’re going to King’s monument and marching to the Justice Department.”
