Raleigh | Public Comment at Judicial Redistricting Committee Meeting

September 27 @ 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

On Wednesday, Sept. 27, at 10 a.m., the N.C. General Assembly’s Select Committee on Judicial Redistricting is taking public comment on rushed legislation to redraw maps that are used by voters to choose their prosecutors and district and superior court judges. Lawmakers will hear comment at the Legislative Office Building behind the General Assembly Building (544 LOB, 300 N. Salisbury St.).

RSVP and let us know you’ll join us in Raleigh to provide public comment on the dangers of HB717 >>

This proposal, House Bill 717, is being pushed by a small group of House Republicans led by Rep. Justin Burr. For months, Burr, a bail bondsman with a vested interest in these changes, has aggressively pushed his partisan and racially-biased plan, despite calls from judges, attorneys, and even members of his own party, to slow down the process and listen to stakeholders. He’s hoping that next week’s committee vote will advance this dangerous legislation. Click here for more background on House Bill 717 and important messages you can share next week.

It’s time to pack the house and fight for our ability to elect judges who will fairly and impartially preside over cases in our communities!

Onward!
