Selders is spearheading the “All Roads Lead to Ferguson” Black Lives Matter Tour through eight cities from Hartford, CT to Ferguson, MO, culminating in a national gathering in Ferguson, one year after the killing of Michael Brown (August 9th, 2014).
Selders’ group, Moral Monday CT, has rallied to support the Black Lives Matter movement against police brutality, excessive force, mass incarceration, the school to prison pipeline, and for racial justice. Moral Monday CT has roots in the current social justice and civil rights movement started by the Reverend Doctor William Barber of North Carolina NAACP in response to recent restrictions on voting rights.
