  • Pass all provisions of the For the People Act
  • Fully restore the 1965 Voting Rights Act
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hr
  • Permanent protections, dignity & respect for all 11 million undocumented immigrants

Schedule of Events

July 27 @ 6pm CT – Evening service and press conference to launch the 3-day march from Georgetown to Austin. Location TBA

July 28-31 @ 7am CT- March begins at 7am CT each morning and finishes for the day in the early afternoon.

July 31 @ 10am CT- Join a mass rally at the end of the Georgetown-to-Austin March for Democracy at the Texas State Capitol.

In the spirit of the Selma-to-Montgomery March of 1965, we are marching to send a message to Washington, D.C.: We demand the U.S. Senate and the White House act now to stop the attacks on our democracy. We want all of our rights, and we want them now! We must resist the extremist and monied powers that want to deny, abridge, and undermine all of our votes. The fight for voting rights and economic justice are one in the same. Join us for this historic march in Texas!

This march and rally is part of A Season of Nonviolent Moral Direct Action led by the Poor People’s Campaign and dozens of partners. Go to action.poorpeoplescampaign.org for more information and updates.
