In a first, Asian Americans to lead march on Washington

[CLI Code] CLI.N.16742524(EN) 

About 15,000 people plan to gather at the National Mall in Washington, DC, on June 25 for the first march led by the Asian American community, NBC reported on Thursday.
Advocates are promoting greater civic participation within the Asian American and Pacific Islander community and across other racial groups, and calling attention to racial and economic justice. More than 50 Asian American nonprofit organizations and diverse groups will join the multicultural march, the report said.
"The Unity March is a historic moment because it's the first march on Washington led by Asian Americans," Kevin K. Hirano, a spokesman for the march, was quoted as saying.
The goals are to unite community groups and to "demonstrate our collective strength as Asian Americans and allies to make change," he said.
The organizers also hope to highlight key issues affecting communities of color through their platform, such as the strengthening of voting rights and supporting multicultural studies in K-12 and university systems.
"This is not just symbolic," Tiffany Chang, a spokeswoman for Unity March, was quoted as saying. She said they are trying to get people to participate in the issues that matter most to them and show their power by participating.
