In the spirit of the Selma-to-Montgomery March of 1965, we are marching to send a message to Washington, D.C.: We demand the U.S. Senate and the White House act now to stop the attacks on our democracy. We want all of our rights, and we want them now! We must resist the extremist and monied powers that want to deny, abridge, and undermine all of our votes. The fight for voting rights and economic justice are one in the same. Join us for this historic march in Texas!
This march and rally is part of A Season of Nonviolent Moral Direct Action led by the Poor People's Campaign and dozens of partners. Go to action.poorpeoplescampaign.org for more information and updates.
