Many people in NC and across the country were inspired by the Moral Monday movement in 2013. Now called the Poor People's Campaign (PPC), it continues in Raleigh, NC, on six Mondays through June, culminating in a national rally in Washington, D.C., on June 23. These rallies coincide with the NC General Assembly short session that begins on May 16.
The theme for the May 14 rally at 2pm, Bicentennial Plaza (1 East Edenton St) in Raleigh, is "Somebody's Hurting Our People: Child poverty, Women, and People with Disabilities." More information here.
From the national website, "The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is uniting tens of thousands of people across the country to challenge the evils of systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation and the nation’s distorted morality."

Voting is one crucial way we work towards supporting the principles and causes we value; peaceful public demonstration is another way we can give voice to them.
