Our lives, our votes, our jobs, and our schools matter
From August 1 to September 16, America’s Journey for Justice–an historic 860-mile march from Selma, Alabama, to Washington, D.C.–will mobilize activists and advance a focused national advocacy agenda that protects the right of every American to a fair criminal justice system, uncorrupted and unfettered access to the ballot box, sustainable jobs with a living wage, and equitable public education.
We will march through North Carolina from August 29th to September 7th and follow a 174 mile route along HWY 1. Click here to register for the march. Each state along the route has an issue focus from the national advocacy agenda. North Carolina is the national battleground for voting rights and so, appropriately, voting rights is our focus. There will be a Voting Rights teach-in on July 31st, the same day that our redistricting lawsuit kicks off in North Carolina's Supreme Court, and a Voting Rights Rally on September 3rd. Click here for more details. Voting Rights is the link between all social justice issues. There will also be other issue-based teach-ins along the march route that the public is welcome to join.
Follow the journey on social media using #JusticeSummer and #JusticeJourneyNC.
