Similar campaigns will be going on in other Southern states, according to the NAACP.

The first six days will begin with a meeting at Bicentennial Mall across from the Legislative Building in the afternoon, and then a march to the Capitol for news conferences and rallies.

Each day will bring a focus on a different issue, from labor to justice to voting to Medicaid.
