The 2016 African American Women and the Law Conference decided that October 6th would be named "Fannie Lou Hamer Day", in honor of Fannie Lou Hamer's birthday. Fannie Lou Hamer Day is a national day of action, accompanied by a Twitter storm. This will be the 2nd Annual Fannie Lou Hamer Day. You can follow along by following the Twitter handle @AAWLC2016 or the Facebook handle @AAWLC, or with the hashtags #FLHaction, #FannieLouHamerAction, #VotingRightsMonth, and #VoteNov7.
This year, Fannie Lou Hamer Day will officially end Voting Rights Month.
