The journey for justice never ends.

Back in June, Cornell William Brooks and the NAACP announced they would be embarking on a 860-mile march from Selma, Alabama to Washington DC in an effort to protect and fight for our civil liberties.

Led by NAACP President and CEO Cornell William Brooks, America’s Journey for Justice – a historic 860-mile march from Selma, Alabama to Washington, DC – will mobilize activists and advance a focused national policy agenda that protects the right of every American to a fair criminal justice system, uncorrupted and unfettered access to the ballot box, sustainable jobs with a living wage, and equitable public education. America’s Journey for Justice will unite partners from the social justice, youth activism, civil rights, democracy reform, religious, not-for-profit, labor, corporate, and environmental communities to call for justice for all Americans under the unifying theme “Our Lives, Our Votes, Our Jobs, Our Schools Matter.

The march kicks off in Selma, Alabama on August 1, 2015. Here are the following dates by state:
