"I March For Selma"

As you know, 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of "Bloody Sunday," the Selma-to-Montgomery March, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Selma was the battleground for the Voting Rights Movement that resulted in the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Many men and women from various races, ethnicities, religions, identities, SES’s, civil rights and labor organizations, etc. spoke out and peacefully fought for the right to vote.  And, we thank them for their work, leadership and sacrifice.

To highlight this historic moment / movement, CHRC would like to know “What are you Marching for”. Please let us know by writing in what you are marching for, take a photo and send it to us. We will be posting your pictures this week on CHRC’s social media sites and website. Also, feel free to post your photo on your social media sites and tag us.    

Two of CHRC’s staff members will be on the ground in Selma to commemorate the 50th Anniversary & will be asking people there “What are you Marching for?” Those photos will be shared as well.
