Nearly 47 years ago, civil rights activists of different races, ages and walks of life were attacked by armed officers on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Ala., as they marched for racial justice. This day became known as Bloody Sunday in the United States.
Once again our rights are under attack as politicians in states and nationally work to divide us by limiting our right to vote, attacking our ability to gain a voice at work and discriminating against new immigrants.
On March 4–9, diverse communities will gather together as one movement to march for the 99%. If you can't join the march in person, you can join online. We’ll be sure to share your comments, so the marchers know that tens of thousands of us stand with them.
Please sign this pledge and tell us (and the marchers) what you are marching for.
