Local students are planning a walk across the Indian River Bridge to commemorate the 1965 Walk Across the Edmund Pettus Bridge led by J Lewes that led to the passage of the 1966 Voting Rights Act. They will gather on March 7th at 3:00 PM in the parking lot of the Indian River Bridge. The walk is supported by CAMP Rehoboth and a broad coalition of social justice organizations. The idea for the walk came about after a group of multi-faith teens viewed the documentary “Good Trouble” and discussed John Lewis’ life and the Selma walk. They wanted to do something to commemorate Lewis, who had recently passed away. The march will also be webcast live and will be videotaped for future publicity and use during the virtual rally to take place on Tuesday March 9 on Zoom.
