The Cincinnati Human Relations Commission (CHRC), National Underground Railroad Freedom Center (NURFC) and Cincinnati-Hamilton County Community Action Agency (CAA) are co-sponsoring the “Bridges to Cross: Building Bridges” commemorative march across the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge beginning at 9 a.m. to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
The program following the march will feature local speakers addressing the topic: “Cincinnati 50 Years Ago”. Participants are invited to complete “I March for _____” response cards to better understand what society is still marching for today. The response cards will later be turned into action items by local Cincinnati agencies, who will reconvene throughout the year and lead community discussions inspired by the completed response cards.
