RALEIGH, NC: Several North Carolinians who represented the NC NAACP and Forward Together Moral Movement have returned from Selma, Alabama, where they commemorated the 50th Anniversary of Bloody Sunday and recommitted themselves to restoring the protection of their voting rights won by the moral and physical courage of their elders 50 years ago. They return to North Carolina re-dedicated to restoring the rights that have been stripped from them by the extreme right's southern disenfranchisement schemes.

They will meet with news media Wednesday morning to reflect on their experiences in Selma and the upcoming campaigns to hold key state legislators accountable in their own districts. They will announce the specific legislators in whose districts the Forward Together Moral Movement will hold community mass meetings. The news conference will begin at10:00 a.m. TOMORROW, Wednesday, March 11, 2015 in the rotunda at the General Assembly.
