Attorney Daryl Jones and I will rotate in asking questions during the show. The questions included below are designed to provide a guide but are not the only possible questions, nor may they be asked in the exact same order.

The entirety of the show’s first two segments will be devoted to the Selma to Montgomery March experience and next steps.

In the third segment, we will discuss the fight to preserve the civil rights history of Selma and more on Black History. Our guest, Phillip Brown will not only discuss his leadership of the Gateway Foundation’s dedication to preservation of the Selma home of Amelia Boynton Robinson but he will also share about his book “Olivia Jones” which incorporates Black history into a child’s sojourn.

The fourth segment will feature a discussion between our radio hosts about major new voting rights developments in the courts, an update on the confirmation process for Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson, the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act and TJC upcoming events.

In light of the vicious voter suppression assault sweeping our nation, this year’s Selma events were of the highest importance. After the historic reenactment and recommitment of the Selma Bridge Crossing with Vice-President Kamala Harris, the subsequent week was devoted to the retreading the 54 mile walk of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and so many others which led to the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

Last week’s show shared the highlights of the first day and part of the Tuesday of this 2022 March. Our show will spotlight the happenings of the following days and the concluding rally at the State Capitol in Montgomery. Lastly, we will discuss next steps to collaboratively combat voter suppression and to preserve our democracy.

Our distinguished and expert guests will provide special insights into this urgent work at the national level.

These are the issues we will cover during this show.

SHOW DESCRIPTION AND BACKGROUND

The topic of our show is “Until Victory Is Won!: The 2022 Good Trouble Fight For The Vote!”

On March 3-6, the annual Selma Bridge Crossing Jubilee was held. This year’s events highlighted our strategic response to the vicious and brutal assault on the right to vote throughout the United States. Given the significance of the 2022 MidTerm Elections, the Transformative Justice Coalition prioritized support of the reenactment of the full 5 day Selma to Montgomery March from March 7-11th. As part of it participation, The Transformative Justice Coalition joined the Poor People’s Campaign and the Rainbow PUSH Coalition on March 7th as co-sponsors for the first full day of the March to Montgomery and again with Black Voters Matter on March 9th for its segment of the March. Indeed, Radio Host and TJC Co-Leader Barbara Arnwine marched every single day of the March and supported all the leadership groups. That Friday, Attorney Arnwine was one of the speakers at the “Fight For The Vote” Rally held at the Alabama State Capitol.

Our guests will illuminate their experiences and perspectives on the March, the Rally and next steps.

We will continue to examine the 2021-2022 onslaught of voter suppression by state legislatures resulting in 34 disenfranchising laws passed in 19 states and a slew of gerrymandering in several key states, many states are poised to pass more voter suppression laws in the first half of 2022. It is more urgent than ever that the federal government protect voters of color and vulnerable voters against these wrongful measures by state legislatures. The US DOJ is suing Texas and Georgia for violating voting rights but this national wave of voter suppression is too large to be addressed by litigation or organizing alone. Indeed, in the last months of 2021, disturbing articles recounted the purging of Black election officials from boards of election in Georgia. In Michigan, there is a concentrated assault to restrict voting rights. In North Carolina, Alabama, Florida and other states there are major legal battles over the extreme partisan gerrymandering. These and other negative voter suppression developments underscore the continuing urgent need for the US Senate to pass the For The People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to mandate federal standards to protect the right to vote and impose review of voting and electoral legislation, practices and procedures proposed by states and jurisdictions with histories of voter discrimination. And the DC Statehood Admissions bill passed by the U.S. House has also been pending in the Senate for months.

Our show is designed to educate our audience on recent developments in this fight for voter justice, the Selma Jubilee Commemoration, the March to Montgomery and to share opportunities and resources for future engagement.
