#NCGA. They locked the doors to keep #MoralMondays folks out

They locked the doors of the General Assembly building yesterday to try and keep the Forward Together Moral Movement from petitioning our lawmakers and calling upon them to repent, repeal these devastating policies and to restore our faith in their government. 




Our eleven moral witnesses would not be moved from petitioning Gov. Pat McCrory yesterday to work for the repeal of these bad laws. As long as our lawmakers continue to pursue policies that hurt North Carolina's most vulnerable, we shall not be moved. We are fighting extremism in the courts, in the streets, in the legislative halls, in the newspapers and on social media and at the ballot box.

Last summer, the extremists in our General Assembly attacked our teachers and public schools by drastically cutting funding and sending millions instead to unaccountable private schools through an unconstitutional voucher program. 


This summer, they are contemplating even further cuts to our public education system: eliminating teaching assistants in many classrooms, including all second and third grade classes; scuttling vital working protections for teachers; refusing to provide adequate funding for textbooks and school buses; cutting money for school nurses; and denying the reinstatement of the popular Teaching Fellows program, which attracted some of the state's brightest college students into teaching. 


Enough is enough. We will stand up at Moral Monday on Monday, June 9 to support our teachers, our parents and children, and all who work in and love our public schools! 


During the Moral Monday rally, the Forward Together Moral Movement will make a special voter registration commitment for the summer.


More information on this upcoming Moral Monday to follow.
