September 20: MLOV joins local and national communities on "Journey for Justice" calling for end to school closures
On a beautiful Friday morning, hundreds of concerned students, parents, organizers and educators gathered in DC in a march calling for a national moratorium on school closures. In a display of true local/national solidarity, the Journey for Justice began at our own DCP Headquarters, where MLOV allies like Empower DC and others spoke to the injustices of school closures and how they affect students.
