Five years ago, on April 29, 2013, we made national history when 17 North Carolinians united to fight the regressive polices of the North Carolina General Assembly that eroded our beloved state and her most vulnerable people. Their courage ignited a movement. Week after week people continued their protest. By the end of the summer, the Forward Together Moral Movement had 1000 North Carolinians arrested for nonviolent direct action to preserve the democracy of our state.
On Monday, April 30, 2018, we will commemorate the Moral Monday Movement as we hold a special Moral Monday Get Out the Vote Observance at 5:30 at the Halifax Mall, (behind the NC General Assembly.)
The Moral Monday FIVE will address the following issues:
Fair Courts, Immigration Justice, Voting Rights and Veterans, Economic Justice, Education, Environmental Justice and Equality for All.
We hope to see you in Raleigh on Monday, April 30, 2018.
Forward Together, Not One Step Back,
Rev.Dr. T. Anthony Spearman
