March To Honor the History of the Civil Rights Movement and Build Its Future
PSC members will join the “Selma is Everywhere” march across the Brooklyn Bridge this Sat. to mark the 50th anniversary of the first march for civil rights from Selma, Alabama, to the state’s capital of Montgomery. Sponsored by Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, the event will memorialize the famous crossing of the Edmund Pettus Bridge and reaffirm our shared commitment to civil rights, racial equality and progressive reform. Marchers will gather at 10:30 AM, Sat., Mar. 7 on the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge. To find the PSC contingent, look for the white and red PSC signs and PSC Secretary Arthurine DeSola. (Email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you’ll be there.) A press conference at 11:00 AM will be followed by step-off for the march at 11:30 AM. Brooklyn Borough Hall is the destination of the march. When we get there, we will gather to watch President Barack Obama’s address to the nation from Selma.
