Turnout was great at the events surrounding the lame duck special session called by the NC Legislature months ago in anticipation of being able to implement some or all of the constitutional amendments they created. Many organizations worked together to expose what they are doing with a press conference on 11/27/18, at 10:45am, and then moving people into the galleries of the NC House and NC Senate. The NC House and Senate sessions were supposed to begin at noon. After the later session, many people gathered in between the two galleries, where Rev. Dr. Spearman of the NAACP spoke, and then we sang together. Some people helped put up tents outside on Halifax Mall and got a chance to eat before a press conference at 1:45 pm to expose the continued terrible conditions some of the Hurricane Florence survivors still face. As Rev. Barber said during the first press conference, the only thing the special session should address is Hurricane Florence recovery. Here are some pictures and descriptions of the day.

Meanwhile, the new voter ID bill is moving fast through Legislature.
