Progressive Coalition Planning March on Washington, October 2, 2010

One Nation Working Together, a coalition of dozens of organizations and individuals, is sponsoring a march on Washington scheduled for October 2, 2010. The organization's webpage contains a tab labeled "What We Stand For," which includes the following statement:
We all deserve a just and fair chance to achieve the American Dream. Our national identity is rooted in the ideal that all people – regardless of race, class, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, heritage or ability – should have the opportunity to fulfill their potential.

One Nation Working Together will chart a bold, pragmatic path toward a more unified, sustainable, prosperous future by building support for these core principles and policy ideals.
The website also says that conservatives, liberals, progressives and moderates are all members of the organization. The list of "endorsing organizations," however, are predominately liberal and progressive groups. It is great to witness some visible social movement activity from the left.

I was just wondering if this march is being done in deliberate conjunction with the AIDS march scheduled for the same day?
