Via email from the good Reverend:
Throughout the holiday season, the NC NAACP and the Forward Together Moral Movement will hold statewide informational pickets outside of Budget Director Art Pope-owned stores. This campaign will shine a light on NC Budget Director Art Pope's support and influence on the extremist and regressive direction of North Carolina public policy. These policies hurt the very people who shop and work at the stores he owns.
During the second week of the campaign, four pickets will be held in cities across the state: Durham, Charlotte, Fayetteville, and Winston-Salem. Information about the time and location of these events can be found below.
The informational picket campaign is a statewide effort to raise awareness and demand that Budget Director Pope call for a reversal of extremist laws and policies passed in the 2013 Legislative Session and support the request for a Special Redemption Session of the North Carolina General Assembly to reverse course on two extremist policies, the denial of Medicaid and emergency unemployment benefits that will harm the most vulnerable members of our state.
