NC NAACP and Forward Together Moral Movement
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.
WHO: NC NAACP and Forward Together Moral Movement

The NAACP, formed in 1909, is the oldest and largest civil rights organization in the U.S. Its members are the consciences of their communities on civil rights. The NC Conference of NAACP Branches, formed 70 years ago, has grown to over 100 Adult, Youth and College branches. With the consistent support of 170 partners in the Historic Thousands on Jones Street (HKonJ) Coalition, it was the Moral Monday/Forward Together Moral Movement architect.
