Taking the Dream Home

Forward Together Movement Rallies across North Carolina on the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington

After many of you attend the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the March on Washington in D.C. on August 24th, we will return to North Carolina and rally in our home state on August 28th, the actual 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. We will heed Dr. King's call at the end of his "I Have a Dream" speech to go home and organize! We will hold 13 simultaneous rallies across the state to bring to light the unconstitutional and immoral acts of the NC General Assembly and the influence their decisions have had on our local communities. We will rally in the 13 Congressional Districts and demand that our Congress People renew Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act. 

Date: 

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 - 5:30pm

Location: 

Peace and Justice Plaza, Franklin St. Post Office, 179 East Franklin Street, Chapel Hill

How will local officials step up to the challenge from Raleigh Republicans?

A recent column by Kirk Ross in the Chapel Hill News makes very clear how increasingly relevant the N.C. General Assembly's shenanigans are to us here at the local level. In the past, many have debated the utility of municipal and county governments weighing in with symbolic resoluitions about state and national issues. Well pardon my French, but sh*t just got real in Raleigh this summer. 

Open Letter to Govenor McCrory

Dear Govenor McCrory:

Please pubically come out against Bill 589. And to veto the Bill. The bill takes away constitutional rights of people with disabilities, like me. 

I have CP, and I'm in an electric wheelchair, and the only way I can vote is to vote early, and once in awhile I have to vote provisionally. I have voted provisionally twice, because it is too hard to get to my precinct. The bill takes away these options. And, with the bill, my staff can't come with me anymore and get paid. And it makes it harder for people who aren't their own guardians to vote. This is against the ADA reasonable accomodations. 

You all should think twice about this. BEFORE passing it. 

From, 

Ellen Perry

Mega Moral Monday

This will be the biggest Moral Monday yet, and is our unique opportunity to put our collective foot down against the corrupt, malfeasant Republican takeover of our state. There will be an especially strong Orange County contingent, including elected officials.

Please join us!

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO RISK ARREST TO ATTEND THE MORAL MONDAY MASS RALLY! The vast majority of people will be there only to attend the rally and serve as supporters. You can even go inside the NC General Assembly, but must leave when asked if you do not want to risk arrest.

For those who make the personal decision to petition the legislature through nonviolent civil disobedience, based on your own moral conscience, it is CRITICAL that you attend a briefing and information session beforehand:
