CJJ on the ground: Selma to Montgomery, 57 years later

CJJ on the ground: Selma to Montgomery, 57 years later

This year marks the 57th anniversary of Bloody Sunday and the Selma to Montgomery marches, which played a significant role in the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Today, that landmark federal achievement in the ongoing struggle for racial justice and true democracy is under attack like never before, and local civil rights leaders in Alabama are taking action again! National organizations have been asked to co-sponsor 10-mile legs of the historic 50-mile march, and CJJ is proud to join the Workers Circle delegation for the 10-mile segment taking place on March 9th.

On Sunday, March 13, please join us in welcoming our marchers home! We'll gather on Zoom from 6:30-8:00pm for a powerful time of storytelling and learning. We'll hear directly from CJJ members about their experiences in Alabama, including Rhoda Silver from CJJ-Durham/Orange County, who also traveled to Montgomery to take action in 1965. You'll also hear from CJJ voting rights leaders about how you can take action in this critical election year (you can also check out our Voting Rights Action Guide here if you can't wait until the 13th!). Don't miss this exciting opportunity to learn from and live into the rich legacy of voting rights activism in our community!
