Selma Bridge Crossing Jubilee, Jubilee Film Festival, and Selma-to-Montgomery March

March 5, 2015 - March 13, 2015

Annual commemoration of the anniversary of Bloody Sunday, Selma-to-Montgomery March, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  This year is the 50th Anniversary.  The weekend’s events include workshops, concerts, plays, a step show, speakers, and more (some events require tickets), culminating in crossing the Edmund Pettus Bridge on Sunday afternoon.  More information about the Bridge Crossing Jubilee at http://www.selmajubilee.com/.  There are also a number of side workshops being organized by ASAN partner groups including the Emerging Changemakers Network, Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice, and Lowndes Citizens United for Action, and others.

Monday March 9 through Friday March 13 there will be a retracing of the full 54-mile Selma-to-Montgomery March, culminating with a rally at the Capitol on Friday.

The Jubilee Film Festival runs March 7-9 and features a number of films relating to food, agriculture, economic justice, and more.  More information on the film festival at http://jubileefilmfestival.com/index.htm.
