Conceived and launched by former state NAACP President, the Rev. William Barber and a broad, multi-racial coalition of activists and advocates, the Moral Mondays movement bore nonviolent witness to the reactionary policies of the General Assembly’s uncompromising conservative leadership, helped spur similar actions in other states and gave rise to a new and growing national movement for social, political and economic justice.
This coming Monday April 30 on the fifth anniversary of the first Moral Monday, activists will gather again to hold a special Moral Monday Get Out the Vote Observance at 5:30 p.m. at the Halifax Mall, (behind the NC General Assembly in downtown Raleigh).
Organizers have dubbed the event Moral Monday FIVE and plan to call on state leaders to deliver Fair Courts, Immigration Justice, Voting Rights, fair treatment for Veterans, Economic Justice, improved public Education, Environmental Justice, among other issues.
