CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Hundreds of protestors have arrived at Marshall Park in uptown Charlotte as Moral Monday moves to the Queen City. People came wearing T-shirts of the groups they support and carrying signs of protest.
The North Carolina chapter of the National Association of Colored People started the rallies held in Raleigh to show their displeasure about the current republican lead legislature.
The NAACP said they wanted to cover the mountains, the coast and the Piedmont. They are located in Burnsville, Manteo, and Charlotte. The goal of the rallies is to educate people about changes to laws that affect them, said Reverend KoJo Nantambu from his house as he readied for Charlotte’s first Moral Monday rally.
"What we're doing is awaking the masses showing them how they can get involved, creating a situation where there is a frenzy intensive motivation to go out and register to vote." said Rev. Kojo Nantambu, President of the Charlotte branch of the NAACP.
