Martin Luther King's Radical Legacy Marches Onward
Reclaim MLK 2020: The Struggle Continues Against Racism, Poverty, and War
The Anti Police-Terror Project again joined with multiple organizations to lift up the radical legacy of Martin Luther King all weekend long, culminating in the 6th Annual Rally and March on Monday, January 20. For six years running, the APTP Reclaim MLK event has been the only MLK March in the city of Oakland. Hundreds of Oaklanders look to the weekend as one of the largest social justice events of the year, bringing together people across race, class and political ideology with a commitment to build a just and equitable Oakland of which Dr. King would be proud.

The Oakland MLK march demands were: Housing as a Human Right, Close the Camps, No School Closures, End Police Repression, Climate Justice, No More War.
