SAN  DIEGO -- Monday marks the 54th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s March on Washington and his iconic “I Have A Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial.

About 2,000 religious leaders are expected to lead Monday's march, including National Action Network San Diego's Rev. Shane Harris who plans to deliver a message to the Trump administration.

“I do believe what’s happening in this country is the opposite of what Dr. Martin Luther King and everything Dr. Martin Luther King said in that 'I Have A Dream' speech 54 years ago,” said Rev. Harris.

In light of the unrest in Charlottesville, march organizers are calling on religious leaders to get outside of their churches and debate the moral questions of the day.

Civil rights activists are warning of a decay of ethical standing in the government and are hoping for a major change.

“There’s been a lot of presidents we’ve agreed with and disagreed with, but we’ve never seen someone leading this country in this manner,” said Rev. Harris.

Monday's march will be led by Martin Luther King III.
