Events and Actions

Updated: November 13, 2018


On-Going -- Action for Fair Voting Districts. For actions you can take in support of fair voting districts, visit: www.EndGerrymanderingNow.org
In the event of another serious act of political malfeasance (such as the firing of Robert Mueller) various Indivisible groups have identified public gathering places in their communities for people to congregate to express their concern and dissent. In Chatham County, the identified location is the Historic Courthouse circle in Pittsboro. For those of you who have not yet been in contact with a local Indivisible group (there are two), you can email NBJacobs16@gmail.com and/or IndivisibleNCDist6@gmail.com for more information.
  • We hope this event doesn’t happen, but if President Trump fires Robert Mueller. there will be a non-violent protest rally at Bicentennial Mall in Raleigh.  There will be similar events in other NC cities. This will be a short notice event, and we will get the word out as soon as we can. For more information now: https://act.moveon.org/event/mueller-firing-rapid-response-events/13414

      Moral Resistance Congressional Visits |

      North Carolina NAACP event: Rep. Mark Walker’s main office: 809 Green Valley Road, Suite 104 Greensboro, NC 27408.
       
    • February 20, 2017 | Lobbying Workshop led by Jane Pinsky, Director of the NC Coalition for Lobbying and Government Reform, at the NC JUSTICE CENTER in Raleigh.
    • February 11, 2017 | Participation in the 11th Annual Mass Moral March on Raleigh and HKonJ People’s Assembly.
    • November 2016 | We publicized the plans for the January 21, 2017 Million Women March on Washington DC as well as the Sister March that was held in Raleigh that same day for those who were unable to attend the Washington March.
    • October - November 2016 | We connected with Chatham County progressives to provide information about opportunities for activism. We won a big victory on Election Day when we voted overwhelmingly to elect Mike Morgan to the state Supreme Court, but now politicians in Raleigh are scheming to overturn the will of the voters.Judge Morgan beat incumbent Bob Edmunds by almost 10 points, or about 350,000 votes. In a year of close elections, this was a blowout.
    • We also encouraged citizens to speak out against the General Assembly's plan add two new Supreme Court seats during the special session to deal with the damage from Hurricane Matthew, allowing them to arrange for appointing right-wing judges to fill those vacancies. We can't let them get away with this.
    • Late summer 2016, we worked with NC Women Matter on the “Women Matter” letter-writing campaign. Many of you might be familiar with that campaign from 2014, when over 13,000 personal letters were handwritten to North Carolina women to encourage them to vote.

    • Chatham Voices for Justice also collaborated with The League of Women Voters (LWV) for Orange-Durham-Chatham on three non-partisan voter registration events in the County, which are described just below:
    May 01, 2016, LWV voter table at the First Sunday street fair in downtown Pittsboro.

    February 13, 2016, we participated in the Moral Movement / "HKonJ" March (Historic Thousands on Jones Street - the Raleigh location of the NC General Assembly). The march is an important annual event to demonstrate the strength and vitality of the progressive movement in NC under the leadership of Rev. William Barber.

    In early February 2016, we conducted a non-partisan voter registration/education event for Galloway Ridge residents and staff. Fresh off a tremendously successful voter education day at Galloway Ridge talking to over 100 voters about where, when, and how to vote, we are making plans for training more volunteers to work at events around Chatham County between now and Election Day in November.

    • We collaborated with the LWV by completing seven voter education training sessions in Fearrington Village on March 19, April 14, May 02, May 07, August 02,  August 04, and August 08, 2016. 

    • April 27, 2016 | A League-sponsored forum on public education held at Extraordinary Ventures in Chapel Hill (across Elliot Road from Whole Foods. Event website http://www.lwvodc.org/edu_action.html.
