The Forward Together Moral Movement Joins the Selma 
Bridge Crossing Jubilee


     The Forward Together Moral Movement is going to Selma! We are organizing a bus to the 22nd annual Bridge Crossing Jubilee. As we commemorate Bloody Sunday, we will continue to fight for voting rights and to build the moral movement as it spreads across the South. For more information, please join the conference call.


     In 1965, a march for voting rights was organized from Selma to Montgomery. The 600 peaceful marchers left on March 7 and got only six blocks before they were brutally attacked by local police while crossing the Edmund Pettus Bridge. This day went down in history as Bloody Sunday and helped lead to the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Despite this attack, thousands from around the nation came to Selma two days later to finish the march.


     Thousands will come again to Selma in 2014 and the Forward Together Moral Movement will join them.
