The League of United Latin American Citizens, the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement and the Hispanic Federation call for all councils, members, and allies to attend and support our fellow brothers and sisters on the Selma to Montgomery March and Rally in Alabama on March 4th- 9th, 2012. The LULAC National Office and LULAC Councils in metropolitan Washington, DC are mobilizing a delegation from Washington, DC to Alabama for the Selma to Montgomery March and Rally. Leaders of several local, state and national organizations are planning to re-enact the historic 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery, with all of its powerful symbolism. Today, 47 years later, many states have launched an all-out coordinated assault on our democracy by attacking workers’ rights, voting rights, public education and comprehensive immigration reform. In 1965, the Selma to Montgomery March made history and changed America. In 2012, we march again…for the 99%. History will be on our side
LULAC, LCLAA and Hispanic Federation Latino Leaders Delegation from across the country will march to Alabama to protect our workers’ rights, voting rights, public education, and immigration reform.
March 7th- 9th (Wednesday- Friday)
