Carolinas News Notes

RALEIGH, N.C. — The Fair Courts, Fair Votes Day of Action, sponsored by Democracy North Carolina, NAACP of North Carolina, North Carolina Voters for Clean Elections and Progress NC, will be held on June 5 beginning at 2 p.m. at the North Carolina General Assembly’s Bicentennial Mall, 1 E. Edenton St.

Participants will be able to “hear about what these attacks on our democracy mean, and how we can take action to fight back. After our rally, we’ll turn that energy into action, heading inside the legislature to share with our lawmakers why we believe they should do their jobs and go home (and leave judges and voters alone!),” organizers said.
