Candlelight Vigil Tonight at the NC General Assembly at 10pm to Protest Backwards Budget

The state House is voting on a state budget tonight that will take our state back decades.

Join the NC NAACP and HKonJ partners for a candlelight vigil tonight to SHINE A LIGHT ON THIS BAD BUDGET.

What: Candlelight vigil
When: Tonight, Friday, June 3 from 10:00pm-11:00pm
Where: Outside the NC Legislature, 16 West Jones Street, Raleigh, NC
Why: Inside, the NC House of Representatives will be voting on a budget that will cut 10,000 educator jobs, threaten community-based services, decimate early childhood education, slash $2 billion out of Medicaid over the next two years, and severly hinder our ability to maintain critical infrastructure like roads, water, and sewer. Let's show them we're watching them.

If you cannot attend the vigil, hold one in your own community and contact your legislators and the Governor. It's especially important for the five democrats who are planning to vote for this harmful budget to hear from you. The five represent more than 135,000 people of color, and even more poor and working white people and they should be reminded of who they represent.


* Rep. William Brisson - (910)-862-7007,
* Rep. Jim Crawford - (252)-492-0185,
* Rep. Dewey Hill - (910)-642-6044,
* Rep. Tim Spear - (252)-797-4481,
* Rep. Bill Owens - (252)-335-0167,

Thanks to the NC NAACP for organizing.

Children should't be subject to life long medical choices

Very interesting statement, which I'm sure the #transinc community will claim to be Transphobic.. in natural. There is nothing bias ...
