Columbia, SC) – NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will join the NAACPSouth Carolina State Conference for the annual “King Day at the Dome” rally Monday, January 16th. The event is held each year at the South Carolina State House to commemorate Dr. King’s life, draw attention to economic and educational equalities in the state, and protest the Confederate battle flag flying in front of the State House building.

**President Jealous will hold a Press Availability immediately following the rally.
**The theme for this year's event is “Preserving full citizenship rights for all Americans”. Holder’s appearance comes just weeks after the U.S. Department of Justice struck down South Carolina’s suppressive photo identification law under the Voting Rights Act. The law would have disenfranchised tens of thousands of racial and ethnic minorities, students and disabled voters.

“The photo identification law that passed through the South Carolina State House last year was an affront to the values that Dr. King stood for,” stated NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Jealous. “We will march to defend our right to vote and to defend our nation’s dream of America as a place where everybody works, everybody contributes, and everybody counts.”

Rally Schedule (Monday, January 16th):8:30 am: Prayer Service at Zion Baptist Church (801 Washington Street)10:30 am: March to State House, followed by rally12:30 pm or immediately following rally: Press Availability for President Jealous (location TBD)#Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization.
