In just two days, Charlotte will host Moral Monday to protest the policies of Gov. Pat McCrory and NC's Republican-controlled General Assembly.
“We are not going to let the so-called religious right define the moral discourse in the public square,” state NAACP President William Barber II said at a news conference Friday at Charlotte Stonewall AME Zion church.I'm planning to go and welcome company!

800 E. Third St.
The Charlotte Moral Monday Facebook page, is already showing over 1200 RSVPs!
We are bringing Moral Monday to every district in the state and we need your help to keep the momentum going.The weather forecast looks OK; unseasonably cool with a high 82F and scattered T-storms. Out-of-town Kossacks who want to attend are welcome to meet at my house and take light rail into town, or just meet us there. The details will also be posted on * New Day * every morning.
Stand up to attacks on our teachers, our voting rights, and healthcare by using these last two weeks to step up the outreach so we can get as many folks out as possible.
Join us on August 19 to let the world know about the extreme attacks on our teachers, our voting rights, and healthcare by the leadership in the NC General Assembly. They want to take back the rights won with the blood, sweat and tears of our forefathers and mothers with policies such as: a new Poll Tax disguised as Voter ID, cuts to Early Voting, ending Same-Day Registration and banning Sunday Voting; taking away a $2500 tax credit from parents whose children do not vote at home, even if they're in college; making felons who have served their debt to society wait another 5 years and get supported by a unanimous decision by the local board of elections to get their right to vote back; and other initiatives to make it harder for some people to vote.
Share this event! Talk to your neighbors and everyone in your community. We need your help.
