Mountain Moral Monday
returns to Asheville on August 4
Join folks from across the region and state for our
“Moral March to the Polls Rally”
Join us for another energizing and inspiring Mountain Moral Monday on August 4, from 5-6:30 pm at Pack Square Park in downtown Asheville.
The Mountain People’s Assembly, a coalition of WNC organizations, and regional WNC NAACP Branches, will host the return of Mountain Moral Monday, a non-partisan program that will highlight the destructive policies enacted by the N.C. statehouse over the past year while strongly focusing on the voter empowerment campaign, “Moral March to the Polls.”
The event will feature Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, President of the NC NAACP and other guest speakers, as well as musical entertainment. In addition, there will be opportunities for participants to get involved in voter registration, education and Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) efforts during the current mid-term election cycle. ‘Moral Freedom Summer’ Organizers and volunteers will be available to help register voters.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Thank You for Supporting the
Forward Together Moral Movement.
“This is no momentary hyperventilation and liberal screaming match. This is a movement. Instead of depressing us, they’ve made us determined to fight. Instead of dividing us, they have united us.” – Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II – Pres. NC NAACP
As a partner with the HKonJ coalition, the Mountain People’s Assembly unites with other coalition organizations to visibly challenge the extremist attacks on voting rights, economic justice, public education, equal protection under the law, and more.
The coalition pushes back against radical ultraconservative legislation which violates the rights of children, African Americans, Hispanics, women, LGBTQ individuals, and other marginalized groups.
The nonpartisan movement holds all lawmakers accountable to the 14-Point People’s Agenda, while rallying around the theme: “Forward together, not one step back!”
The HKonJ Coalition has worked to transform the 14-Point People’s Agenda into comprehensive reform bills that have been introduced in legislative sessions.
