“Democracy Reform” town hall scheduled for July 19 in Raleigh

For those who find themselves increasingly distraught and frightened about the survival of American democracy in the age of Trump and rogue legislative bodies like the North Carolina General Assembly, here’s an event worth checking out. On July 19 — two weeks from today — there will be a “democracy reform town hall meeting” in Raleigh hosted by an array of progressive organizations and leaders at the Cameron Village Regional Library.

This is from the official announcement from Congressman David price:

“From extreme partisan gerrymandering and attacks on voting rights to foreign interference in our elections and rampant corruption in Washington, American democracy is at a crossroads. A lack of accountability and transparency has left many Americans disillusioned about their government and wondering what they can do to restore trust and integrity to the democratic process.

I hope you will join me at a special Community Forum on Thursday, July 19 to receive a congressional update on these issues, hear from local advocates about the democracy reform agenda in North Carolina, and offer your own thoughts and ideas for solutions to the challenges facing our nation. We will also discuss the road ahead in light of recent developments such as the Supreme Court’s redistricting rulings and the General Assembly’s proposed constitutional amendments.”
