After many weeks of reading the morning paper and cursing under my breath about the countless bills that set back human rights, civil rights and democracy in NC, I hopped on the People's Alliance bus in Durham on June 3, 2013 to take part in Moral Monday. The video captures the voice and powerful words of Rev. William Barber and images of protest and North Carlina citizens making their voices heard. 151 people were arrested on this day.

From the Forward Together website:
The Forward Together movement will continue to fight against cuts to social programs, education reforms and changes to voting laws in the state. The legislation that the NC House has pushed forward would hurt the most vulnerable North Carolinians and the voting rights legislation continues to attempt to undermine the people’s right to vote.

If you are in North Carolina and would like to get involved or receive updates on the Forward Together Movement text NC 62227 for more information.
