One of the biggest southern marches against state policies since Selma in 1965. That’s how North Carolina NAACP President Rev. Dr. William J. Barber the Third describes the Moral March On Raleigh this coming Saturday.

[Rev. Dr. William J. Barber III]: “The Moral March on Raleigh is part of the anti-racism, anti-poverty, pro-labor deeply moral Forward Together movement. And with diversity and solidarity, thousands will stand against what we believe are morally indefensible, constitutionally inconsistent and economically insane policies being passed by our North Carolina General Assembly and signed by the governor of this state.”

Saturday’s march is part of the Moral Mondays Forward Together Movement, which last year resulted on a thousand civil disobedience arrests at its Moral Mondays protests a the North Carolina capitol.

A coalition of activists from the Beaver-Lawrence Central Labor Council, the NAACP, and the 12th CD Chapter of Progressive Democrats of America will travel to Raleigh, NC this Friday for a march and rally. They will march in solidarity with the people of NC who are pushing back against the anti-democratic and austere laws passed by the right-wing NC legislature.

The Moral March on Raleigh will mark a new high point in the Moral Monday’s movement that has seen thousands of civil disobedience arrests in protest of extremist legislation passed by the Tea Party controlled legislature.

The Beaver County MLK 50th Anniversary Coalition organized buses to the Washington DC march and rally this past August.
