Sunday, March 24, Raleigh: Raleigh/Apex NAACP "Remembering Bloody Sunday"
March and Rally, 3pm, Martin Street Baptist Church.
If you are not familiar with Bloody Sunday, it was a voting rights march that took place in AL on March 07, 1965; it started out peacefully, but many protesters were injured (hence the name), and it was a catalyst for the Voting Rights Act (VRA) later that year. If you've been following voting rights news, you know that key provisions of the VRA are being reviewed for possible termination by the Supreme Court; and also that NC wants to make all voters show ID when they vote. You probably are also aware that as a country and state, we still struggle with voter engagement, voter confusion, and long lines.
