What is Moral Monday?
Moral Monday is a series of ongoing, nonviolent protests at the North Carolina General Assembly that has been happening every Monday since April 29 (not including Memorial Day) led by the NC NAACP. The protests are meant to demonstrate a push back against an "extreme" agenda that "includes cuts to education, social programs and unemployment benefits; rejecting Medicaid expansion; new restrictions on voting and labor rights; and restarting the death penalty."
