This Tuesday marked the end of the momentous America's Journey for Justice march organized by the NAACP.
The event began on August 1, with activists from across the country setting off from Selma, Alabama and marching toward the capital to draw attention to the ongoing fight for equal protection under law that continues decades after the start of the Civil Rights Movement.
Along the way, organizers made stops in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia to focus on state-specific issues like income disparity, education reform, and voting rights.
Five states and over one thousand miles later, on the 52nd anniversary of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Selma, the Journey for Justice arrived in Washington, DC where activists rallied for an end to inequity.
Members of the EveryAction team were grateful to join in the final leg of this inspiring journey as it came to a powerful conclusion on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. It is my hope that is some small way our voices will help strengthen the path to justice. The experience is one that my colleagues and I will never forget.
