NC NAACP and Forward Together Moral Movement Call on Governor and General Assembly Leaders to Let North Carolinians Vote on Raising Minimum Wage in 2016

DURHAM, NC: The NC NAACP and Forward Together Moral Movement sent a letter to the Governor and leaders in the General Assembly this afternoon, asking them to let North Carolinians vote on raising the minimum wage and indexing it to inflation on the 2016 ballot. Their request comes little more than a week after they launched a petition inviting North Carolinians to voice their support for the measure. It also comes less than four months after four Republican-led states -- Alaska, Arkansas, Nebraska, and South Dakota -- voted to raise their minimum wages.

Below are copies of the letter sent to Gov. Pat McCrory, Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger, and House Speaker Tim Moore:

 The NAACP, formed in 1909, is the oldest and largest civil rights organization in the U.S. Its members are the consciences of their communities on civil rights. The NC Conference of NAACP Branches, formed 70 years ago, has grown to over 100 Adult, Youth and College branches. With the consistent support of 170 partners in the Historic Thousands on Jones Street (HKonJ) Coalition, it was the Moral Monday/Forward Together Moral Movement architect.
