I Have a Dream: Tipping the Balance of Power Back to the People

Phil Radford

Tomorrow, the progressive movement will stand together to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington because we want to protect working families, keep our air and water clean, and ensure justice for every American.

Corporate money is currently flooding our political system and drowning out the voices of everyday Americans. We are gathering together tomorrow in Washington to send the signal that this is still our fight  and we have the momentum to win it now. People from across the country are fighting to tip the balance of power back to the people, and away from big money and bigotry.

We want to realize Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream of America, but we can't do it if we're divided into separate groups.

If you believe in a united vision of government working for all of the American people, share this video to tell the world that "We Are All Connected."
