BLOODY SUNDAY 2022 SELMA MARCH 57TH ANNIVERSARY
Atlanta, GA to Selma, AL
In partnership with the NAACP, Dare To Live Right sponsored a trip for 150 students from Atlanta to the Edmund Pettus Bridge for the Annual March Across Key Landmark of the Civil Rights Movement.
On Sunday, March 6, we sponsored 150 students from Tri-Cities High School and West Lake High School in East Point, GA, to travel to Selma, AL, in partnership with the NAACP. Students marched across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, a National Historic Landmark, and the site of a key march for voting rights during the civil rights movement. Through this moving educational experience, students of all ethnic backgrounds were inspired to respect and appreciate the power of their vote.
In our third year of partnering with this event and as a continuation of our nationwide “Mission 1865” campaign we look forward to growing this to an annual program for the Southern region. We are planning to take even more high school students on this trip next year.
