Taking the Dream to Charlotte! Forward Together Movement Rally On the 50th Anniversary of March on Washington

On the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington, North Carolina will heed Dr. King's call at the end of his "I Have a Dream" speech to go home and organize! We will hold 13 simultaneous rallies in each of the US Congressional districts.

We will also rally in the 13 US Congressional districts and demand that our US Congressional representatives renew Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act after right wing forces won out in the recent US Supreme Court Shelby v. Holder to repeal the heart of the VRA. Charlotte is in District 9 represented by Robert Pittenger.

We will lift our voices and say "Forward Together, Not One Step Back!

RSVP and invite your friends to get the most up-to-date details!

To get involved in organizing in Charlotte, email info@naacpnc.org and write "Organizing for Taking the Dream Home: Charlotte" in the subject line.
