Membership has its advantages; please join us in preserving our great history of the Civil Rights and Voting Rights struggle in America. Join us in preserving our Local histories of the events of “Bloody Sunday," Turn Around Tuesday, and the 1965 Selma to Montgomery march.
If you are a current member, your contributions have assisted the National Voting Rights Museum and Institute to create many great opportunities for people to learn about the Voting Rights struggle, a part of America’s long hard road towards freedom, justice, and equality.
If you wish to become a member, you can join current members, the people of Selma, and the National Voting Rights Museum and Institute in assuring Voting Rights Education is reaching school children and young people, locals, visitors and patrons outside of the Dallas County Region and Alabama. Please allow us to provide you with a glimpse into the past and a moment to be inspired to make a difference. Teachers and communities are afforded the chance to learn about the principles of nonviolence, the Courageous Eight and their defiance and determination to challenge Jim Crow and fight for Voting Rights, the Reconstruction Era and its key role in forging the way for African Americans to reach equality and justice in America, and the role of women in the struggle for the 19th Amendment.
By becoming a member, you can learn about Voting Rights, the struggle to achieve Voting Rights in America, the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Voting Rights Act of 1965, landmark legal cases such as Brown v. Board of Education, Topeka, Kansas, and the dismantling of Jim Crow in the American South. Thousands of people are reminded of the Selma to Montgomery Marches and their accomplishment through the Annual Commemoration Bridge Crossing Jubilee. Learn about the “Foot Soldiers" in the continuous exhibit housed through the Museum.
Through your renewed membership and by becoming a new member you will partake in many of these opportunities, but there are new opportunities and goals on the horizon as well. Your support, will allow the National Voting Rights Museum to continue to update and modernize its galleries and exhibits, and to stay in the forefront of technology and advancement. Your contribution will allow us to maintain general operating expenses, support staff and volunteers in preservation and conservation education and oversee the continued growth of the National Voting Rights Museum and Institute’s Archive and Repository.
