We've packed the General Assembly for three days. 17 people have been arrested. The fight has only just begun.
We will be back at the NC General Assembly on Friday at 10:00 a.m. We need to keep the pressure on. The House just passed several extreme bills including HB17 which cuts Governor-elect Roy Cooper's appointment powers to the State Board of Elections, UNC System trustees, and Senate confirmations. These bills will be heard by the Senate tomorrow. A number of other extreme bills will be discussed and likely passed in both chambers. Most of the damage is still to come.
You can also join us at 2:00 p.m. when Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II will arrive. Come whenever you can. We will be there all day.
