The conference will conclude Wednesday afternoon with a march from the Washington Hilton Hotel to the offices of conservative political operative Karl Rove and his Crossroads GPS Super PAC. The march and rally will "indict" Rove for his leading role in what march supporters are calling an effort by a small group of wealthy conservatives to buy our democracy and suppress the votes of ordinary citizens. More details of the march are available here.
