Beto O’Rourke leads voting rights activists in a march from Georgetown to Austin

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — They’re calling at a “Selma to Montgomery” style march but it’s actually starting in Georgetown and ending in Austin.

A group of voting rights activists are marching 27 miles in opposition of changes to the state’s voting reform bill.

They’re hoping their efforts will push congress to pass federal voting legislation.

Two groups are sponsoring the march. One is Former Congressman Beto O’Rourke’s Powered by People organization. The other is the Poor People’s Campaign.

The march began at 7 A.M. Wednesday and will end at the capitol on Saturday.
