WASHINGTON, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — One Nation Working Together (ONWT) will formally launch its upcoming One Nation Working Together March on Washington during a national media briefing on Friday, September 17 at 10:30 AM EDT.

One Nation Working Together is an unprecedented, diverse national movement of people from all backgrounds united in a shared belief that in America today the fundamental rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness mean jobs, justice and education.
