DEFENDING OUR DEMOCRACY:
In concert with Black Votes Matter (BVM), Sun City Indivisible and Lowcountry Indivisible, we are supporting the Freedom Ride for Voting Rights which will take place across the South beginning on June 19 and culminate in a rally in Washington, DC on June 26.
BVM’s Freedom Rides for Voting Rights continues the tradition of the original Freedom Rides as more than 40 states consider legislation to restrict voting rights.
The Freedom Ride event will be at the State House (1100 Gervais St, Columbia, SC 29208) in Columbia, SC on Tuesday, June 22 from 2 to 4 PM. If you are interested in participating in the event, we are coordinating carpools that will leave the Hardeeville area from the Walmart parking lot at 10:15 AM. Look for the American flag by the corner closest to the gas station. Bring signs saying “Protect Voting Rights” as well as water and snacks.
Contact Jerry Whalen replyLCI@gmail.com or Pam Reading-Smith email@example.com for more information and to schedule your participation. Please put Freedom Ride in the subject line.
