America's Journey for Justice march began in Selma, Alabama on August 1st, the 50th anniversary of the date President Johnson signed the historic 1965 Voting Rights Act into law. The march, which is being organized by the NAACP, will conclude with a rally in Washington, D.C. on September 16th. With support from labor unions, environmental groups and clergy of many faiths the 860-mile march is mobilizing activists in five southern states on the issues of reforming the U.S. criminal justice system, restoration of voting rights, establishing a living wage and equality in education.
Marchers from diverse communities are being greeted by well-wishers in cities and towns across five states: Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia , where teach-ins focused on issues important to area residents are being held in schools and churches.
While the marchers are raising consciousness about social justice struggles in each state they visit, they're also focusing on the national campaign to restore the Voting Rights Act, that the U.S. Supreme Court gutted in a June 2013 ruling. That high court decision effectively allowed dozens of states to implement restrictive and discriminatory voting regulations. Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with NAACP National Field Director, Carmen Watkins, who discusses the origins and objectives of "America's Journey for Justice" march from Selma, Alabama to Washington, D.C.
