Takin' It To The Streets!
On Monday, April 29, 2013 a group of 19 conscientious objectors, including NC NAACP President William J. Barber, II and our Moore County NAACP President O'Linda Gillis, were arrested inside our state's General Assembly for protesting extreme and regressive legislation with regards to voting rights, women's rights, LGBTQ rights, public education, an assault on poor and working class people and a reckless disregard for the state's natural resources. That day of protest, songs and prayers marked the beginning of the Moral Monday Movement, which has lead to the arrests of over a thousand people of good conscience over the past year in North Carolina and hundreds more in other states as the fervor of the movement has spread across the country.
As impressive and inspiring as the Moral Monday Movement has been, all our hard work and sacrifice will all have been in vain if we fail to turn out the vote in the weeks we have left before the mid-term elections.
To that end the Moore County NAACP and People's Assembly Partners will be conducting voter registration/voter education drives each week until election day, November 4. 2014. We will be doing door to door canvassing Mondays - Thursdays of each week beginning on Monday, August 4. Each Canvass will begin with a 15 minute training at the office at 340 N Saylor St. in Southern Pines at 6:00 p.m. before proceeding to predetermined destinations to canvass until 8:00 p.m. There will also be two shifts of door to door canvassing on Saturdays, the first at 11:00 a.m., the next at 1:00 p.m. Again, both will begin with the 15 minute training at the office at 340 Saylor St. in Southern Pines.
Finally, there will be people stationed at opportune locations in the area on Saturdays up until election time.
If you have any questions, or if you have an idea for getting out the vote that you would like to share, please contact Moore County NAACP President O'Linda Gillis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your support!
