For three election cycles — 6 long years — the all-white Republican Caucus that rigged elections to gain super-majority control of the General Assembly, was unconstitutionally seated. The U.S. Supreme Court recently affirmed 9-0 that this Republican Caucus used racist gerrymandering to win their seats, and while they illegally held them, passed anti-Black, anti-immigrant, anti-gay, anti- healthcare, anti-poor-people, anti-women, anti-workers, anti-democracy legislation. And for six years this illegal General Assembly have re-segregated the two parties to achieve some of the most segregated voting booths in modern NC history.
On Tuesday, August 22 at 4:00 pm Public Hearings will be held at seven sites. I hope you can pack each of these hearings with your strong voice and presence to fight for fair, racially just, desegregated maps.
