The AFL-CIO released a flyer announcing the five-day march from Selma, Alabama to Montgomery, Alabama, on March 4-9, 2012.
The march, sponsored by the National Action Network, commemorates the historic voting rights march of 1965. Thousands from the civil, labor and human rights community are expected to participate.
The 52-mile march will follow the original route and highlight the current revival of GOP voter suppression efforts at the state and national level. Over 30 states have new or pending changes to current voting laws that could significantly reduce the number of early voting days, require voters to show restrictive forms of photo identification before voting and make it harder for volunteer organizations to register new voters.
The march will begin at the infamous Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma and conclude with a rally at the Alabama State Capitol in Montgomery.
