Tar Heel Action on Citizens United; Greensboro & Raleigh Events

I’m looking forward to joining Common Cause, Free Speech for People, and the American Constitution Society in Greensboro and Raleigh NC on Monday, March 26.  Please spread the word with Tar Heel friends!

Here are the details for Greensboro at 12:00. 

And here’s the Raleigh event at 7:00 p.m. 

North Carolina is seeing the same unified, non-partisan response to the grave threat to republican democracy from Citizens United v. FEC and the hold of unlimited money and corporate power over our elections and government. People across the Tar Heel state are working to overturn the decisions and to take back our Bill of Rights and government of, for and by the people.

Several North Carolina cities and towns have passed resolutions condemning the Citizens United case and calling on Congress to take action on the 28th Amendment to reverse the decision.

North Carolina Congressman Walter Jones and 24 other U.S. Representatives are co-sponsors of the People’s Rights Amendment and Rep. Jones and others also have signed onto related Constitutional amendment bills. North Carolina Congressman David Price has also joined the 28th Amendment effort.

If you’re in the Triangle or Greensboro area on Monday, March 26, it would be great to see you!

Here are the details for Greensboro at 12:00.
