RALEIGH, NC - As a part of its pivot towards the Moral March to the Polls, the North Carolina NAACP and the Forward Together Moral Movement will host a Moral Monday Broadcast on Monday, June 30 to galvanize people all across the state to begin intensive voter registration and mobilization campaigns in their hometowns.

Starting at 7 pm, the Moral Monday Broadcast will be live-streamed across the state and the nation. People unable to attend the event in Raleigh at Davie St. Presbyterian Church are encouraged to hold watching parties in their communities.

The Moral March to the Polls - which kicked off last week in tandem with Moral Freedom Summer's placement of young organizers in counties across North Carolina - will bring the Movement's longstanding fusion coalition and its energy to bear on get-out-the-vote efforts ahead of the November elections.

"The Movement is dedicating itself to voter education, voter registration and voter participation ahead of the November elections," said Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, president of the NC NAACP. "This summer and fall, we will be pushing to turn out thousands of people who did not vote in 2010 and to register thousands more first-time voters in our state. The power of the franchise should not be underestimated."

At the Moral Monday Broadcast, Dr. Barber will frame the Movement's transition to voter mobilization, and experts will walk attendees and viewers through the process of arranging voter registration drives and canvassing. Speakers will discuss why the Forward Together Moral Movement must focus on mass voter education, registration and mobilization efforts over the next 18 weeks.
