The 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington
The 50th anniversary of the March on Washington is quite a moment. A moment to reflect on what it took for those men and women to come together. A moment to think of where we are today.
Today, we honor so many who achieved so much, demanding fairness and equality in the face of hardship, discrimination, and violence.
As Secretary of Transportation, I can’t help but think of the historic connection between transportation and the civil rights movement. Literally or figuratively, transportation has played a role throughout the history of our nation’s progress toward civil rights. And it still does.
