Update @ 1p: The technology gremlins ate our chat! Apologies folks, we had technical troubles with this event and, rather than keep you waiting, we’re postponing it. We’ll still have this crucial discussion! More to come on the new day and time. Thanks for your patience.


This summer, young activists across the country have put themselves on the line. From Moral Mondays to the Dream Defenders, the Dream 9 to the Million Hoodies March, a new wave of direct action is coming to the forefront.

Colorlines News Editor Aura Bogado talks with a panel of organizers about the ways in which our communities are mobilizing for social justice, as we reflect on the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. Our panel includes:

  • Luis Leon, Dream 9 activist 
  • Phillip B. Agnew, Dream Defenders Executive Director @PhilUnchained
  • Bishop Tonyia Rawls, Unity Fellowship Church pastor and Moral Mondays activist @BishopRawls
