Seven days of challenges to immoral authority
Join us for seven consecutive days of action at the North Carolina State Capitol to expose and challenge the destructive laws coming out of Raleigh.
What: Moral Monday all week-long
When: 3:30 pm each day starting Friday, 8/22 and ending Thursday, 8/28
Where: Meetup on Bicentennial Mall (3:30) then rally at Old State Capitol (4:00)
Every day for one week, we will gather outside the offices of power and demand that Gov. Pat McCrory, House Speaker Thom Tillis, and Senate Leader Phil Berger repent and repeal their public policy attacks on North Carolinians’ civil and human rights. We are fighting for the type of democracy that places the common good at the center of public policy!
Each day we will emphasize several urgent issues, but all justice-loving people are encouraged to attend all the days.
On the last day,Thursday, August 28 – the 51st Anniversary of the March on Washington – we will hold a mass rally on Bicentennial Mall for voting rights and voter mobilization – the Vote Your Dreams, Not Your Fears Rally – at 5:30 pm.
