The crowd of protesters outside of the Dirksen Senate office building in Washington, DC, is growing quickly.
Organizers from Freedom Fighters DC told CNN that their plan is to march down the National Mall to the front of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture where they expect a couple of speeches
One demonstrator, Philomena Wankenge, who is a Freedom Fighters DC board member, said she was willing to die for this movement on behalf of her family's future.
"I don't care if I lose my life if that means my nieces and my nephews won't have to deal with someone invalidating them because of the color of their skin," Wankenge said.
"It sounds extreme and it might sound dramatic to people but as a black person every day that I wake up I could die. Especially as a black woman dealing with sexism and dealing with racism I'm combating double the trouble," she added.
After the stop at the African American Museum, the group will proceed to the Lincoln Memorial.
The group will end the day at Freedom Plaza, which is across the street from the DC mayor’s office.
