Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

I am a cofounder of an organization called Fuel the People which raises money to feed protestors through partnerships with local Black & POC-owned restaurants. Our mission is to nourish protestors while also supporting and uplifting local businesses. Since we started in June, we’ve fed over 16,000 protestors in DC & NY. We’re currently raising money to support protests commemorating the March on Washington throughout the upcoming weekend in DC, and would greatly appreciate it if you could share our GoFundMe.”

The Post reports:

“A civil rights rally timed to the 57th anniversary of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s seminal “I Have a Dream” speech, delivered in 1963 from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, is expected to bring thousands to the same spot on Friday.

Headlined by the Rev. Al Sharpton, who will be joined by King’s eldest son, Martin Luther King III, and family members of several men and women who were killed by law enforcement officers, the demonstration will conclude a week of large-scale events in the nation’s capital, including days of protests and a fireworks display over the Washington Monument to mark the end of the Republican National Convention.”
