North Carolina Responds to Voter Suppression: Educate, Organize and Mobilizeby Featured Organization December 19, 2013
Since late September 2013, Patricia Ferguson and I have participated in 12-15 NC Legislative Black Caucus sponsored Town Hall meetings held around the state. The purpose of the town halls was to update communities on the ways that they’ve been impacted by regressive legislation passed by the 2013 NC General Assembly, to educate communities about the legislation and to define a way forward in addressing community priorities. Our task has been to address voter suppression and to help to define an appropriate community response. During our presentations we’ve addressed the national Republican led campaigns to suppress the right to vote and to translate its present and future impact on voting in North Carolina.
