RALEIGH - The NC NAACP will host a news conference on Friday morning to discuss the third wave of Moral Monday nonviolent acts of civil disobedience, which took place earlier this week at the NC General Assembly. Forty-nine more individuals chose to bear witness to the destructive and extremist policies emerging from the NC General Assembly on a daily basis. Members of all three waves will be present at the news conference.

           The news conference will take place in the Family Life Center of Martin Street Baptist Church, 1001 E. Martin Street, Raleigh, NC on Friday, May 17, 2013 at 10:00 am.

           On Monday, May 13, 2013, another remarkably diverse group of North Carolinians made the personal and moral decision to engage in nonviolent civil disobedience. They included workers, veterans, labor activists, students, college professors, the Chair of the Durham County Board of Elections and clergy, all ranging in age from 19-83.  


Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization. Its members throughout the United States and the world are the premier advocates for civil rights in their communities, conducting voter mobilization and monitoring equal opportunity in the public and private sectors.
