Moral Monday movement mourns Orlando shooting, anti-LGBT House Bill 2 (video)

NC NACCP President Reverend William Barber and members of the Moral Monday movement spoke out yesterday against gun violence, homophobia, and the anti-LGBT bill known as HB2.

Barber told the audience of about 150 people that :

“Religious hate, class hate, and the rhetoric of hate is always a precursor and a prerequisite to the actions of hate. And so we gather as one human family  in a vigil for love, justice, equality, and non-violence. And by our very presence we stand in protest to hate and discrimination.”

The NC NAACP is calling for a full repeal of HB2.  Click below to hear more from Monday’s rally outside the state legislature:
