Please join me for a celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act on Wednesday August 5th, 6 p.m. – 7: 30 p.m. at the Bayview Baptist Church, 6134 Benson Avenue, San Diego. This event is free and open to the public. The celebration will feature guest speakers, music, voter registration and a dramatic re-enactment of the signing of the historical legislation that ensured and expanded voting rights to all American citizens.
As we see attempts to roll back voting rights in a number of states, it’s a good time to reflect on the widespread disenfranchisement of minorities and the struggle that led to passage of the Voting Rights Act. We need to revisit the history and heroes of that struggle and recommit ourselves to honor their sacrifice by exercising our right to decide who makes the decisions that affect our lives.
Attendees are encouraged, though not required, to dress in the clothes of the Civil Rights Era (1950s and 60s).
