Alabama march re-enacted by Latinos

Re-enacting the historic 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery, LULAC, LCLAA, the Hispanic Federation, and supporters will march from Washington D.C. to Montgomery, Ala., from Wednesday to Friday to rally for the protection of worker’s rights, voting rights, public education, and immigration reform.

Leaders of several local, state and national organizations are planning to re-enact the historic march, with all of its powerful symbolism, to remind the nation that the rights of many have been under the assault of a coordinated attack from the states, said LULAC.

The march will end with a combined rally at the steps of the Alabama State Capitol, with small rallies and workshops along the way. Transportation, meals, and lodging will be provided by LULAC for members in the DC-Virginia-Maryland area.
