Email concerning the Moral Monday Rally on the 17 of June 2013

This Monday, June 17, the people of North Carolina will once again meet in Raleigh for the 7th wave of Moral Mondays, and we encourage you to be there!

Hundreds of North Carolinians are showing their dismay and opposition to the General Assembly's regressive agenda by participating in civil disobedience and being arrested. Thousands more are showing their support for Moral Mondays by attending a rally and joining the protest!

This Monday has a special emphasis on health care and environmental justice - and we'll also be sending Gov. McCrory a message that "we are not outsiders." Look for a table on the Halifax Mall that will have materials you can use to make a sign showing where you're from or what issue you're there to support. Or bring your own sign with you (you'll have to fold it up if you go inside the General Assembly building). We'll be taking pictures to show the world that this movement is diverse and home-grown.

We look forward to seeing you at 5 PM on Monday, June 17 at the Halifax Mall behind the General Assembly (use 300 Salisbury St., Raleigh in your GPS). For information on the orientation for participating in nonviolent civil disobedience, call the NC NAACP office at 919-682-4700.

Forward together!
