"Protect Our Vote" Rally
The Virginia Legislative Black Caucus held a "Protect Our Vote" Rally on the morning of January 31, 2012 at the Bell Tower in the lower southwestern corner of Capitol Square in downtown Richmond, Virginia (near the corner of 9th and Franklin Streets).
The "Protect Our Vote" Rally featured Special Guest Civil Rights leader Dr. Benjamin Chavis. The General Assembly voted on voter suppression bills that same day and this demonstration was an attempt to make the voices of Virginia's voters heard.
