Over the past two years, North Carolina has emerged as the national battleground for voting rights.  At the same time our voting rights are being undermined, our rights to a fair criminal justice system, equitable public education and livable wages are also under attack.  As a result, the people are fighting back.   A  group of marchers from across the nation gathered in Selma, Alabama on August 1st to once again cross the Edmund Pettus Bridge.  There they began an 800 mile march to Washington, DC as part of what the NAACP is calling America’s Journey for Justice!  On August 29th the marchers reached the NC state line.  On Wednesday and Thursday of this week they’ll be in Raleigh.

 On Thursday, September 3, 2015 The NC NAACP Will Hold A Mass Voting Rights Rally in Raleigh.

At 4:00 PM the NC NAACP and all concerned citizens are asked to gather at Shaw University to march into downtown Raleigh.   At 5:00 PM the group will gather at Bicentennial Mall for the rally and program, which will take place on 16 W. Jones St. Raleigh, NC

Rev. Barber, President of the NC NAACP asks that you make plans to attend the rally!  Together we’ll demand that our state and our nation restore, strengthen and advance the voting rights of the people!
