Female members of NAACP chapters from across North Carolina expressed concerns about the legislative record of Sen. Richard Burr last week, charging that the North Carolina Republican, who is up for reelection in 2016, has a record that shows “a disregard and disrespect for the value of women in North Carolina.”
Flanked by N.C. NAACP President Rev. Dr. William Barber II, members of the organization WIN (Women In the NAACP) and other members attending the three-day state convention in Winston-Salem on Friday, Oct. 9, Executive Director Rev. Michelle Laws charged that Sen. Burr has repeatedly stood in the way of women’s issues.
