Statement: 58th Anniversary of Bloody Sunday

For Immediate Release 

March 6, 2023 

Redistricting and Voting Rights Advocates Remember ‘Bloody Sunday’ 

WASHINGTON – Redistricting advocates including Alabama Forward, Equal Ground, Florida Rising, the Ohio Organizing Collaborative, the Power Coalition for Equity and Justice, and the Southern Coalition for Social Justice, today remembered ‘Bloody Sunday.’ In releasing the following statement, they urged voting rights organizers to continue the fight that civil rights leaders began more than 58 years ago: 

“In the same way that our ancestors persisted – even amid death and threats of death – we too will persist,” said Jasmine Burney-Clark, executive director of Equal Ground. “What we are seeing in Florida, in terms of attacks on Black history, efforts to silence discussions on race, restrict the right to vote, and oppress political opponents is emblematic of a new wave of Jim Crow. But we will continue to organize and resist.”
