The Fight for Our Democracy: A Civil Rights Tour with LaTosha Brown

Atlanta, Selma, and Montgomery • March 11-14

Selma and the Alabama Black Belt were the battlegrounds for the Civil Rights Movement that resulted in the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

This year—the 55th Anniversary of Bloody Sunday and the Selma to Montgomery march—WDN will be traveling to Alabama and Georgia to understand more deeply our enduring legacy of racism and our fight for civil rights and democracy.

Join us for a special trip with LaTosha Brown, co-founder of Black Voters Matter, where we’ll meet with key movement leaders to understand the history that shapes our civil rights reality in the South, hear about current work in the Black Delta, and take action together.
