One Heart One Alabama: Rally and Lobby Day to Repeal H56

February 14 is the kick-off of a series of lobby days to show legislators that Alabamians want HB56 to be repealed immediately. We cannot continue to let our state suffer under this economic, moral and civil rights crisis. WE LOVE ALABAMA!

The Valentine’s Day event is just the first in a series of rallies pushing for the end of HB 56, and pushing for the promotion of immigrant and minority rights.  On March 4, activists will begin a five-day march at the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, where civil rights marchers were famously gassed and beaten by state troopers in 1965.  That rally will bring civil rights, labor, and immigration activists together to protest state laws they say will dampen black and brown voter participation.
