On Tuesday, November 21st, Forward Justice will gather in Winston-Salem for the NAACP North Carolina’s federal court challenge to the discriminatory North Carolina Voter ID Law.
Attacks on voting rights in North Carolina have already upheld racially gerrymandered maps and overturned access to the ballot for over 56,000 North Carolinians.

In collaboration with the North Carolina Poor People’s Campaign and 7 Directions of Service, Democracy Out Loud will hold a press conference and protest on Tuesday, October 10th at 11:30 am to urge legislators to protect North Carolinians’ right to vote freely and fairly, and to protect our environment. Anti-voter bills SB 747 and SB 749 have been vetoed by Governor Cooper because they will make it harder for North Carolinians to cast their ballots and will destroy our county and state Boards...
