What is America’s Journey for Justice?
The NAACP, in conjunction with the labor, civil rights, environmental justice, educational, and faith-based communities, is calling for the formation of a broad coalition to march from Selma to Washington, D.C. beginning on August 1, 2015. ‘America’s Journey for Justice’ will enable us to come together to bring attention to and persuade the leadership in Washington to adopt an advocacy agenda that includes our lives – ensures a fair criminal justice system, our votes — uncorrupted and unfettered access to the ballot box, our jobs –promotes sustainable jobs and living wages; and our schools — the need for equitable education.
Join us for the NAACP’s 860-mile march from Selma to Washington. We’re embarking on this journey to show the entire nation that our lives, our votes, our jobs, and our schools matter. Whether you are able to march all the way, across Virginia or just join us for one rally, your participation in this Journey is critical.
