Resources for folks covering/attending the convention in Charlotte next week

Assuming North Carolina doesn’t have a hurricane of its own to contend with, the Democratic Party will gather in Charlotte for four full days next week to renominate President Obama.

In anticipation, Andria Krewson of the Chalotte Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists has prepared a list of resources for journalists which you can read by clicking here.

The ACLU of North Carolina has also prepared a “Know your rights at the DNC” video for journalists, demonstrators and others in attendance. Click here for more information.

    As a fair nonprofit, always seeking truth and justice, where is my guide for the Republican Convention? Since I can not attend the Democrat Convention, I need some information. Where are the jobs and how are we going to pay off the debt? Finally, we are we going to end the war? The poor are fighting the war and no one seem to care.

    Hey Rob,
    I have another great resource for the DNC, they should all watch this new hit movie, 2016: Obama’s America. This helps fill in the gaps regarding Obama’s background and motivations.
