Here in New Jersey, we have tolerated levels of racial and economic segregation in our schools not seen since the days of Jim Crow in the South.
Sunday, March 20th, is the 57th anniversary of the start of Dr. King’s historic march from Selma to Montgomery to confront Alabama’s segregationist governor.

It also marks the one year anniversary of the historic march from Pleasantville to Absecon demanding Governor Phil Murphy stop school district secessions and end racial segregation in our schools.

Unfortunately, it also marks one year of being ignored by Governor Murphy while his administration ignores and worsens racial segregation in our schools.

It has been a year in which the pandemic response has served to further expose school segregation while causing a catastrophe of learning loss.

This spring we begin a new offensive of sustained and militant action aimed at pressing our legislators and our governor to give this crisis the attention it deserves.

We will gather at Mt. Zion Baptist Church at 1:30 PM where we will begin the march for Freedom, justice, and Opportunity.
