GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Community activists are inviting the public to a unity march in downtown Greenville on Saturday, March 7.

Organizers say "All Lives Matter March on Main - Salute to Selma" is designed to unite community members and honor civil rights leaders who marched on Selma 50 years ago.

Organizers say the march begins at noon on Main street at the block between North Street and Beattie Street. The march will continue through downtown on Main street and will end at Court street.

Greenville police officers will participate in the march in unity, organizers said.

Greenville Police Chief Ken Miller, Mayor Pro Temp Lillian Brock-Fleming, Councilwoman Xanthene Norris and Rep. Chandra Dillard are expected to attend as guest speakers.

Organizers say many city leaders and local activists will take part in the march to spread a message of prayer and unity. 

They also say they want to remember the efforts of marchers 50 years ago who fought for civil rights. Anyone who plans to attend is encouraged by organizers to bring banners and signs with messages of peace, freedom, equality and justice.
