It's official. When Governor McCrory signed the voter suppression bill earlier this week, our state officially became "First in Voter Suppression." This assault on our voting rights can not stand. When we can't vote, we can't solve environmental problems we have in our own backyards.
But we're fighting back. I hope you've seen the Moral Monday protests that have taken place during the legislative session, and on August 5 when thousands packed into downtown Asheville. An amazing, genuine grassroots movement, convened by the NAACP, came together as thousands of citizens from every walk of life and every demographic to stand up to the radical legislature to demand a more rational, moral approach to governing. And because our job isn't done, we're coming out to communities like yours to make sure the call is heard from across the state.
Join Sierra Club and dozens of other groups for Moral Monday in Charlotte on August 19. Being there will send a message that you stand up to the legislature's radical agenda that is giving North Carolina a bad name.
WHO: You, Sierra Club, NAACP, Action NC, Greenpeace, the Charlotte Community Coalition, and dozens of other groups
