“Out of Control in Raleigh” tour exposes extremist agenda
Bigger than just Art Pope
North Carolina’s legislature is out of control — and it’s time to speak out and push back.
The legislature’s “midnight attack” on our state’s teachers in January revealed their willingness to ram through an extreme agenda, no matter what it takes. They continue to attack our voting rights, too, pushing for a discriminatory voter ID law, withholding funds for Early Voting, and more.
Please join us at a public forum about how these hard-line conservatives are turning back the clock, who’s bankrolling their agenda, and what it means for our lives.
Featured speakers (depending on location) include MaryBe McMillan of the N.C. AFL-CIO, Chris Kromm of the Institute for Southern Studies, Chris Fitzsimon or Rob Schofield of N.C. PolicyWatch, and Robert Dawkins, Nancy Shakir or Linda Sutton from Democracy North Carolina.
You’ll have a chance to ask questions and share your perspective, too.

After the success of our first-ever Art Pope Exposed town hall in December, we decided to take the show on the road – and broaden the message. Art Pope may be the most dangerous man in North Carolina politics, but the extremist agenda he helped put into action is bigger than him and affects everyone in our state. Folks outside of Raleigh need to know about it.
