From UUA President Rev. Peter Morales: On July 13 a federal court in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, will hear arguments in N.C. NAACP v. McCrory, a case challenging that state’s recently enacted voter suppression laws. Make no mistake about it: these laws are aimed at suppressing the votes of young people and people of color. Rev. Barber calls this a “full-on assault on the voting rights of minorities.” I completely agree with him, and that is why I am going to Winston-Salem to stand with him on this issue.
What happens in North Carolina will have an impact on the entire nation.
In 1965, Unitarian Universalists responded to the call from the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to go to Selma. Today what Dr. King called “the fierce urgency of now” calls us to Winston-Salem on July 13. Please join me and the Rev. Dr. William Barber, II, in this struggle for democracy.
