Another busy week of activism

Moral Mondays 2The General Assembly doesn’t return to Raleigh until next Tuesday for a brief (hopefully) veto session, but there will be plenty of action in the the policy world this week as well. 

Tomorrow in Raleigh, House Republicans will be holding a fundraiser at the exclusive and recently integrated Carolina Country Club on Glenwood Aveue. Meanwhile, worker advocates and progressive activists will be picketing outside from 4:30 to 6:00. Click here for more information.

On Thursday in Raleigh there will be another workers’ rights action — this one to support the burgeoning movement for low wage workers — especially in the fast food industry. The event is scheduled for 3:30 at Matin Street Baptist Chuch. Click here for more information.

Finally, of course, on Wednesday — the actual 50 th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington — activist will gather in 13 sites throughout the state in a series of events led by the North Carolina NAACP.

Here are the updated details:
