Tuesday is the 49th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
From Texas to Florida, there is an organized effort to suppress the vote. We must organize to protect the vote. As a Facebook friend commented:
A little bit done and accomplished is better than a whole lot planned.
Melanie Campbell, President and CEO of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation, is doing more than a little bit. To commemorate the March on Washington and the 7th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, she is co-hosting the NCBCP Unity ’12 Campaign organizing meeting.
Melanie has issued a call to action:
We need all hands on deck! Black history has taught us that when we work together in UNITY, we have the collective power to win our fights against injustice and ignite new movements for economic, political and social justice for all people.
Stand your ground. Join the Unity ’12 Campaign.
