Kim Hughes (accompanied by Penny Rose )WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT —Many mountain citizens have heard something of the actions of the NC Legislature in recent months. Many mountain citizens have traveled to Raleigh to voice their concerns over the far reaching implications of recent actions by the NC Senate, NC House of Representative, and the Governor. Several of those citizens who’ve traveled to Raleigh are from here in the Swannanoa Valley and some of them have been arrested while protesting within the halls of government.Why are so many people concerned?
Why do so many people feel strongly enough that they are willing to risk arrest?
How do the recent votes and actions impact individual citizens?
How do these actions affect our children? those who are sick? the elderly?
How do these actions impact the rapidly growing number of unemployed North Carolinians?

Many are eager for

-more information about the issues,
-more information about the process by which the legislature has
passed these measures,
-more information about the effects of these measures on
everyday citizens from all walks of life
-more information about what the average citizen can do
to seek positive change.

MORAL SUNDAY will not be a partisan political rally.

Anyone of good will is welcomed!

We will address issues of justice for the common good.

We will explore how the Moral Monday Movement seeks to inform our legislators and Governor about concerns related to a variety of issues which have been negatively impacted by recent legislation including:

–Protecting,defending and expanding voting rights (more voting rights, not less);

–Economic sustainability and the need for addressing poverty, full employment and labor rights;

–Ensuring healthcare, such as Medicare and Medicaid, is accessible to all;

–Providing educational equality for all students and children;

–Addressing the continuing inequalities in the criminal justice system for Black, Brown and poor White people.

No admission charge. Donations will be accepted for the NAACP, which has led the Moral Mondays protests.
