They're all reaching for the same dream. The one made famous by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Jack Bryant, Stamford's NAACP president, read Dr. King's speech at Faith Tabernacle Baptist Missionary Church in Stamford, reciting, "I have a dream that one day our nation will rise up!"
Dr. King delivered his famous "I have a dream" speech 50 years ago Wednesday. For many, that dream still lives on today.
"This is a continuation of the March on Washington in 1963 and the one in Washington in 2013," said Bryant.
Tuesday evening, the Stamford NAACP and local labor members marched through downtown to Faith Tabernacle Baptist Missionary Baptist Church. The crowd shouting, "yes we can" in English and Spanish.
"Martin Luther King's, his dream, which has not materialized yet. We want to make sure everyone knows we're still fighting for that dream to come true," said Bryant.
They say they walk for freedom, jobs and immigration reform.
"Our union has been participating in the fight for immigration reform. Both locally and our international union," said Alberto Bernardez, the assistant supervisor for SEIU local 32BJ.
Bernardez says they're fighting for 11 million others who came to America for a better life.
"The American people deserve it. There's no reason why we don't do it. There's no economic reason, there's no moral reason. The moral thing is to bring 11 millions of people from the shadow so they can continue contributing to the American economy," said Bendarez.
And half a century later, they say they're hoping for the day Dr. King's dream comes true.
