WILMINGTON, NC - Almost five decades after the passage of the Voting Rights Act, which eliminated unjust voter restrictions that plagued our nation's democratic principles, the North Carolina NAACP and the Forward Together Movement are fighting to eradicate them once again. The Forward Together Movement will gather in Wilmington on September 15th to voice its aversion to these Jim Crow-era laws. 


"From the mountains to the coast, people are speaking out against the state legislature's attempt to suppress our vote and silence our voice," said Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, president of the NC NAACP. "We have organized in the streets, in the courts, and now we are heading to the ballot box. In Wilmington, people are ready to organize, register, and vote this November." 


The Wilmington Moral March to the Polls rally will be the fifth in a series of Forward Together Movement voter mobilization rallies across the state leading up to the November election.


The North Carolina NAACP and allies like the United Steelworkers and the League of Women Voters of the Lower Cape Fear - among others - will meet at the Riverfront Park to stand up for moral voting laws as well as affordable health care, public education, gender equality, and environmental justice.
