Good people of Blue NC, especially those of you near Asheboro or within a sane drive to Asheboro (I am talking about you Greensboro!) -- why not leave work early this Friday and join me and a bunch of other people unhappy with Thom Tillis and all he represents at a rally? We'll be gathering in Asheboro at 4 PM on Friday to protest the unconstitutional post-midnight legislative session called by GOP lawmakers last month as well as their ever more lousy public policies. It will be held right before House Speaker Thom Tillis’s town hall (see details after the jump). A couple hours protesting and you can be on your way to a good weekend suffused with a sense of accomplishment -- plus we could meet in person and... there's nothing like a good protest rally to get the blood going!
We have the signs and have cleared things with the town to be there, so all we really need are some on-the-ground troops. People are free to advocate for whatever the issue of their choice is, of course, and to bring signs of their own. We’ll have people with us advocating for women's rights, protesting cuts to public education and environmental regulations, and representing many other issues. Some of them will also be going inside to ask questions when the town hall starts at 5:00 PM but you could just stay outside and chant if you want.
People can call me at 919-855-2401, Ext. 2 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if they need details or would like to RSVP.
Here is the rally info:
