Selma Solidarity March in Flint

There will be a Selma Solidarity March and Rally in my hometown of Flint on Sunday March 5.  The March will start at 3pm at the Flat lot on the corner of 5th and Saginaw Street in downtown Flint. During the march participants will use the sidewalks to march along Saginaw Street up to City Hall Park where there will be a rally with speakers. The lineup for the march will begin at 2pm at the White Building lot near 5th and Saginaw Street.

According to organizers, for the last twenty years Selma has commemorated the 1965 Bloody Sunday March and the March from Selma to Montgomery anniversary. These two key events led to the Voting Rights act of 1965.

Flint, MI faces racial and economic injustice as we have witnessed and experienced with the Flint Water Crisis. Marchers in Flint will join masses of marchers throughout the nation as thousands will come together to stand in solidarity with Selma and fight discrimination and rally for the right to clean water in Flint.
