The Immoral and Misleading Politics Hidden Beneath the Surface of House Bill 2

The NC NAACP and Forward Together Moral Movement will continue exposing what extremist legislators have politically promoted as the "gay and transsexual restroom bill" - also known as House Bill 2.

The legislation has very little to do with restrooms and much to do with our need to prevent this immoral attempt to legislate a wide array of unconstitutional discrimination and hatred which we find when we read the fine print beneath these homophobic scare tactics. 

The NC NAACP and the Forward Together Moral Movement stands in solidarity with civil rights leaders, labor leaders and hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians who are organizing and taking action in various areas of the state against House Bill 2.  We refer to it more appropriately as "Hate Bill 2." 

It is sad that certain so called Christian leaders are supporting this bill and participating in this political ploy.  Jesus made his primary focus caring for the poor, the sick and least of these.  Where are these leaders when health care, living wages, and voting rights are being denied and public education is being undercut? They are strangely silent.

#FreeKalvin & #FreeDontae Now!

"Free Dontae Sharpe and Kalvin Michael Smith" Initiative

On March 24, 2016 the North Carolina NAACP announces State and National Campaigns to "Free Dontae Sharpe and Free Kalvin Michael Smith", two black men each wrongfully imprisoned for almost half their lives for crimes they did not commit.

On November 5, 2016, after 20 years in prison, Kalvin Michael Smith was freed but Dontae Sharpe, from Greenville NC, is still behind bars. We call on Governor Roy Cooper and Attorney General Josh Stein to do the right thing and free Dontae Sharpe.

Watch the video of the March 24th news conference and hear from Dontae Sharpe's mother by clicking on the image below.


It's Our Time! It's Our Vote!

We are approaching an historic election year. North Carolina has suffered from a flood of immoral and unconstitutional policies supported and passed by our Governor and General Assembly over the past four years. This extreme and regressive agenda has hurt ALL North Carolinians. They have voted to deny us healthcare, defund our schools, suppress our votes, raise taxes on the poor, deny us equal protection under the law, hurt our environment, and more. Now it is our time to vote.

If you believe that an injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere; if you understand that what happens in North Carolina has implications for the future of the nation; if you are committed to building a moral movement to save the soul of our state and country, then we need you to get involved in the Forward Together Moral Movement's It's Our Time, It's Our Vote GOTV campaign.

A Get-Out-The-Vote campaign can only bring us closer to a true democracy if it is long-term, issue-based and contextualized within on-going organizing to hold elected officials accountable once they take office. In a climate of voter suppression and spreading extremist ideology, our GOTV efforts must be comprehensive and include voter education, registration, mobilization, and protection. We must build an organizing infrastructure that will last far beyond 2016.

The North Carolina NAACP is partnering with Democracy North Carolina, faith leaders, and other HKonJ Coalition partners to organize local It's Our Time Get-Out-The-Vote committees across the state and mobilize over 3,000 faith communities to participate in It's Our Time Souls to the Polls campaign.

If you as an individual, your organization, or your faith community would like to get involved in the It's Our Time, It's Our Vote campaign, please email and write "It's Our Time" in the subject line.

The 2016 Election is an important election for North Carolina. Positions up for election include:

President & Vice President of the US
Senior U.S. Senator 
All US House of Representatives 
All NC House of Representatives
