State Democratic lawmakers and civil rights activists urged a crowd gathered at the steps of the Capitol on Friday to continue fighting for voting rights protections, immigration reform and against a school-change bill passed by the Republican controlled Legislature last week.
“It has been pointed out several times this is a movement not a moment,” State Sen. Hank Sanders said.
Sanders was among a series of speakers Friday during a rally at the Capitol at the end of the annual Selma to Montgomery march, commemorating similar treks during the civil rights movement in 1965. (Alabama Media Group)
