Repeal HB2 Special Session

NC General Assembly
16 W. Jones St. Raleigh, NC

Today, Governor-elect Roy Cooper announced that the NC General Assembly will hold a 5th special session this week to repeal "Hate Bill 2," the anti-worker, anti-LGBTQ, anti-family legislation passed earlier this year. Governor McCrory has not released the official proclamation so we do not know the exact date or time but when it is announced, we will be ready to join our legislators in Raleigh. Their special session track record does not instill confidence that they will keep their word, so we will monitor the session to ensure that the bill is repealed in full and no other legislation is discussed. This is certainly a victory of the people but this is no reason to praise our legislators. "Hate Bill 2" should have never been passed and it has done massive damage to our state. All praise goes to the people of North Carolina who never gave up the fight and who declared that discrimination has no place in our legislation.

Equal Access to Public Education for All!

Saturday, December 24, 2016

NC Community College Administration Building
200 W. Jones St., Raleigh, NC

Click here to RSVP on Facebook

Join the North Carolina NAACP and the Adelante Education Coalition for the 10th annual No Room at the Inn news conference to call for equal access to public higher education in North Carolina. The first Christmas was celebrated in a stable, because there was no room in the inn for Mary and Joseph. On December 24th, we'll celebrate the holiday season by standing with those pushed to our society's margins because of where they were born. Undocumented and DACAmented students in NC are not eligible to receive the same educational rights as others. Instead, they must pay prohibitive out-of-state tuition,sometimes 4 times as much, although they have lived and paid taxes in NC most of their lives. During this holiday season, we demand equal education for all!

Over the past week, the NC General Assembly engaged in an unconstitutional and immoral political coup.

We will not back down from any fight and we will make sure that whatever they do will not be done in the dark. We need tens of thousands of people to join us on Jones St. Will you be there?
