This years hurricanes and the pathetic response by our government galvanized a lot more people to attend the Million Man March. As their website said:
The Millions More Movement: Repairing Ourselves and the World
The catastrophic disaster caused by Hurricane Katrina and aggravated by Hurricane Rita of necessity forms a central focus of our concerns and active commitment as we continue to organize the Millions More March and build the Millions More Movement.
There were also a number of non-Muslims who made an appearance including The ReverendJesse Jackson who said: “We march this year because there are two Americas, where gaps continue to exist”
Another was Dr. Dorothy Height who said: "I am so honored that women are responding so well. I know the strength that comes when we come together."
Also on the Million Man website are recorded messages from
and Min. Louis Farrakhan.
