This morning, Remember 2 Vote, a campaign by local businessman James Miller Jr. is planning an event called Millennium March LA: Voter Awareness Drive to call to action Gen-Z’ers and Millennials to vote.
“Had it not been for the passion and sacrifice of the original civil rights leaders, the opportunities I’ve had wouldn’t have come my way,” said James Miller, Jr. “The older generation of Blacks that benefited from the bus boycotts, marches and Civil Rights movement of the 50’s and 60’s have a responsibility to transfer our deep history of activism to the new generation. Those marches and non-violent protests led to the advancement of our people, and that’s what we aspire to do with this peaceful event.”
The first march of the day will begin at Center of Hope Church at the corners of Crenshaw Blvd and Hardy Street. Registration begins at 9am and the march will commence at 10am, heading to Inglewood city hall.
A second march will commence at Faithful Central Bible Church at the corners of Florence Ave and Inglewood Ave. Registration for the second march begins at 11am and starts at 12pm, again heading to Inglewood city hall.
At 1pm there will be a rally at Inglewood City hall.
This event is sponsored by Center Of Hope, Papa John’s Westchester, Faithful Central Bible Church and Bishop Kenneth C. Ulmer, Recess University, and the Coach Rondell Camp. It is endorsed by the LIVE FREE Campaign, the Black Church PAC and Pastor Michael McBride, and the Philos Project.
