The mission of the Bridge Crossing Jubilee is to preserve, commemorate, educate and raise awareness about the Voting Rights Movement, and the importance of voting rights and human rights today. In pursuit of this mission, Bridge Crossing Jubilee is held annually and attracts participation from thousands of people across the Nation and particularly from near by Black Belt Counties. In the late 1990's, the Jubilee incorporated public education as a major goal of the Jubilee because it is the key to ending the school to prison pipeline and also the key to an educated and informed electorate.

The Annual Bridge Crossing Jubilee is held the first full weekend of every March to commemorate “Bloody Sunday", the March from Selma-to-Montgomery, and the passing of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The Jubilee takes place the first weekend in March at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge and is attended by an estimated 30,000 people. It hosts over 40 events including  workshops, concerts, banquets, educational summits, parades,  awards ceremonies, pageants, and  a street festival of music, art,  and history. The Jubilee also serves as a reunion for many of the Voting and Civil Rights participants.
