Thanks, Melba Evans, President of Charlotte NOW.

Come protest the NCGA as they force members in on a Saturday to override Governor Cooper’s vetos of bad bills they passed at a hastily called special session on 7/24/18, called with less than 24 hours notice. Protest North Carolinians being tricked into giving the NC General Assembly a “blank check” to do whatever it wants to our state. Fine if you can only come out for a half hour (outside) or an hour.
Come greet the NCGA on Saturday morning, 8/4/18, as they return to Session to try to override the Governor’s vetoes of their hastily enacted legislation intended to deceive North Carolinians into voting away their rights.
