The Selma-Dallas County Friends of the Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail Association is the official Friends Association of the Voting Rights National Historic Trail.  The Friends Association members contributed countless hours encouraging and coordinating community involvement in activities relating to shaping and presenting a collective vision for the Trail.  The Friends Association facilitated scores of opportunities for all voices to be heard and incorporated all comments, desires, and recommendations into a final position presented to the United States Department of Interior, National Park Services.

As the Voting Rights Interpretive and Regional Welcome Center develops, the Friends Association shall continue executing its stated mission and purpose.
