Be A Part of History
Join the NC NAACP and the Forward Together Movement on a trip to Selma, Alabama to celebrate and commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Bloody Sunday and the Crossing of the Edmund Pettus Bridge and to sound the charge for the restoration of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
The upcoming battle in the courts to challenge North Carolina's voter suppression law will be the first since Shelby, the 2013 Supreme Court decision to gut the Voting Rights Act. When the trial starts this summer, North Carolina will be the epicenter of the voting rights struggle of 2015. North Carolina MUST be represented at the Selma Jubilee commemoration.
There is still time to sign up and be a part of this historic event!
Rescheduled to March 12, 2015, due to weather.

The NC NAACP and the Forward Together Moral Movement will join with health and environmental experts to discuss the dangerous consequences of the Dan River spill and of coal ash ponds on our economy, environment, and health.
Are you concerned about the health risks of living and fishing near a coal ash pond? Do you have questions about Gov. McCrory and the NC Department of Environmental Resources' response to the spill? Do you believe Duke Energy needs to use this opportunity to create jobs and pay to clean up the spill with their own profits rather than hike our electricity bills?
Tuesday, March 11, 2014 - 4:00 pm
South side of the State Capitol
1 E. Edenton St. Raleigh, NC 27601
RSVP on the Facebook event.
The NC NAACP and Forward Together Moral Movement will rally outside the state capitol building on Tuesday, March 11 to draw attention to the massive rollback of voting rights that extremist lawmakers pushed through the General Assembly last year and to call for renewed mobilization for voter protections at both the state and federal levels.
Co-hosted by the Saving OurSelves (S.O.S.) Movement for Justice and Democracy as a part of its week-long tour through Southern state capitols, Tuesday’s demonstration will highlight the tremendous harm done by the US Supreme Court’s reckless decision to gut the Voting Rights Act last summer and will push for Congress to restore a full-strength version of Section IV under the act. Currently, congressional lawmakers have introduced a weaker reinstatement of the 1965 Voting Rights Act that would leave North Carolina, Alabama and Florida as uncovered jurisdictions under Section V.

Over the past year, the North Carolina State Legislature, Gov. McCrory, Speaker Tillis, Senate Leader Berger, and Budget Director Art Pope have waged war on hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians through the passage of extreme and regressive laws – severe cuts in unemployment benefits for 170,000, the denial of Medicaid to nearly 500,000 people, increased taxes for working people, and the adoption of a budget that makes drastic cuts to public education. If that was not enough, these extremist politicians also passed the nation’s worst voter suppression bill

For the past seven years, a fusion movement has been growing in North Carolina. In 2006, the Historic Thousands on Jones St. (HKonJ) People's Assembly Coalition was formed under the leadership of Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II and the North Carolina NAACP. It has grown to include over 150 coalition partners. Each year this fusion movement comes together on the second Saturday in February to hold a mass people's assembly to reaffirm its commitment to the 14 Point People's Agenda and to hold lawmakers accountable to the people of North Carolina.

The NC NAACP and HKonJ Coalition Partners invite you to join us as we prepare for the Moral March on Raleigh with a mass meeting and service on Friday, February 7, 2014 at 7:00 pm.
Traditionally during the Civil Rights Movement, mass meetings and worship services were held every evening during a struggle and especially on the night before marches. The mass meetings served to inspire the participants, emphasize the moral center of the Movement and give marchers the courage to continue the struggle.
The Pre-Moral March Mass Meeting and Worship Service is open to all people. This service is designed to prepare us for the Moral March on Raleigh by spiritually invoking enthusiasm, fellowship, confidence, strength, unity, love, peace, and a source of power beyond what can be seen with our eyes or calculated with our minds. This is a call for humility, prayer, redemption, solidarity, endurance, and spiritual connectivity as part of the moral civil/human rights tradition, and prophetic journey toward justice.
