Upcoming Moral Monday Movement Events

June 17, 2015 @ 5:00 p.m.

Voting Rights Moral Monday on Wednesday

Bicentennial Mall

Jones Street, Raleigh, NC


July 13, 2015 

Voting Rights March in Winston-Salem on Monday, July 13 -- the opening date of the federal hearing to challenge North Carolina’s voter suppression law .


On July 13, the federal court will hear North Carolina NAACP v McCrory, our lawsuit to reverse North Carolina’s unconstitutional, immoral voter suppression law. North Carolina’s law is the first and the worst since the Shelby v Holder, which gutted the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  Our voting rights, gained because people marched in Selma, have been compromised.  Now we must march! We will not surrender the most fundamental right of a democracy: the unabridged right to vote.  Just like in Selma, we must march!


Schedule of the Day!

8:00 a.m. - Pre-Trial Press Conference

10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. - Teach-ins

5:00 p.m. - March and Rally for Voting Rights

(Sites to be announced)

Hotel accommodation will be announced at a later date


If you are interested in joining us on this date, please email me.  We are trying to get a bus or van.  Need to know by July 6, 2015.  If you drive on your own, we would like to know also.  Would like to have a count from Moore County.
