Reverend Al Sharpton and the National Action Network (NAN) are enforcing strict rules and restrictions to ensure safety during the 'Get Your Knee Off Our Necks’ march on August 28th amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

The march's COVID-19 protocols include distributing masks, thermometer check-in stations, restricting access to buses from states or cities that are COVID-19 hot spots, and practicing social distancing. Rev Al Sharpton, National Action Network, Martin Luther King III, NAACP, Attorney Benjamin Crump and families of police brutality victims, along with labor leaders, clergy, activists and civil rights advocates, will lead a Commitment March to fight for criminal justice reform in solidarity with those who have lost loved ones at the hands of the police.

The march, under the rallying call ‘Get Your Knee Off Our Necks,’ will coincide with the 57th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s March on Washington, where he delivered his historic “I Have A Dream” speech in 1963.

Speakers will include the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Eric Garner and others led by Attorney Benjamin Crump, who will address the senseless loss of Black lives at the hands of police and advocate for issues including police accountability, criminal justice reform, voter protection and more. Protesters and activists will gather at Lincoln Circle to hear the day’s programming before marching to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial.
