“Fair Courts” Events Happening Across North Carolina

Think our judges should be fair, independent, and removed from politics?

Unfortunately, politicians in Raleigh think differently. Top legislators are trying to gain partisan control over the courts and rig the system in their favor. First, they canceled primary elections for judges, and now the politicians are planning to return in January 2018 to cancel judicial elections and simply appoint their political friends to fill the bench and tilt the scales of justice in their favor. Learn more here.

Right now, members of the N.C. General Assembly are home in their districts for the holidays. And we have a chance to tell them directly to oppose this brazen conspiracy to rig the justice system for partisan control.

Attend one of these 90-minute town halls, hosted by Progress NC and NC Voters for Clean Elections (NCVCE), where local legislators and other experts will be invited to discuss our community’s concerns, and we’ll give the latest ways to help you fight back for fair courts.

If you have questions, please contact NCVCE’s Melissa Price Kromm at melissa@ncvce.org.
