Are you ready for #justicesummer?

America's Journey For Justice will march through North Carolina from August 29th to September 7th. There will be several events through out the 10 day journey that the public is welcome to join! 

Voting Rights Rally

September 3, 2015

4:00 PM - March 

Meet on South St. in downtown Raleigh near Shaw University

5:00 PM - Program & Rally

Bicentennial Mall at 16 W. Jones St. Raleigh, NC 

Each state along the Journey for Justice route focuses on a different issue from the NAACP national advocacy agenda. North Carolina's focus is voting rights. On September 3rd, as marchers arrive in Raleigh, we will gather together to demand that Congress restore the Voting Rights Act and North Carolina Legislators protect rather than suppress the vote of the people they vowed to represent.
