Raleigh – Stolen Votes, Silences Voices; March to the NC Legislature
October 4, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The NC State Legislature has stolen our votes through gerrymandered districts. We will march in silent protest, to represent the thousands of stolen voices across this state.
On Wednesday 10/04 @ 10am we will meet in front of the Duke Energy Center at 2 E. South Street. We will march north on Fayetteville St until the Capitol, turn right on to E. Morgan Street for half a block, turning left onto S. Wilmington St. to the Legislative Building.
For visual effect marchers are asked to consider covering their mouth with Black Tape (supplied by the organizers) or a black bandana/scarf. Please wear a white shirt, and any posters or signs should pertain to gerrymandering and/or voting rights. We need a strong consistent statement to capture media and the public’s attention.
The March will conclude with a press conference scheduled at 11am on the General Assembly lawn. The Legislature resumes special session at noon, so we expect to have a significant impact on news coverage that day.
