NAACP offers bus trip to Washington event

The Augusta NAACP chapter, along with more than 170 other organizations, will participate in a march on Washington, D.C., in October to "pull the nation back together and demand the change many Americans voted for."

Dr. Charles Smith, the president of the chapter, said the march is to demand jobs, justice and education and reorder national priorities so investments in people come first.

The march, organized by One Nation Working Together, will be held at noon Oct. 2 at the Lincoln Memorial.

A bus will leave Walmart at 3209 Deans Bridge Road at 11 p.m. Oct. 1. To reserve a seat, contact Smith at (706) 724-0390 or
