Tuscaloosa, Alabama NAACP Hosts “Get Out the Vote” Rally, March
The “Get Out the Vote” Rally and March is hosted by the Tuscaloosa Branch of the NAACP. It will be held on Saturday, November 5 at Snow Hinton Park, 1000 Hargrove Road East, Tuscaloosa, Alabama, 35405. The rally will run from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
In addition to the Rally and March, the Mobile Voter ID Unit will be on-site to provide picture IDs to those who need them to vote in the Mid-Term Election on Tuesday, November 8.
“The Right to vote is sacred. It gives us the right to bring about needed change and those that neglect the privilege place themselves in the hands of representatives that may not hold their constituent’s best interest. It’s our leverage,” said Lisa Young, Tuscaloosa NAACP.
According to the press release, many local organizations are participating in the rally and march event along with NAACP like “the Alabama Poor People’s Campaign, The Tuscaloosa-West Alabama Chapter of the National Pan-Hellenic Council, The Susan G. Cooper Community & Empowerment foundation, The Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance, A Call to Talk – A Community Call to Action, and Black Voters Matter.”
