CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Moral Monday scene in Raleigh could be coming to the Queen City.
Civil rights organizers are preparing for thousands of people to show up to Charlotte’s Moral Monday protest next week in Marshall Park.
Friday, they also announced a new initiative: Social Sunday.
They want religious leaders from all denominations to go to their Web site and print off a copy of its Forward Together lectionary.
They want faith leaders to use it to talk to their congregations about issues like voting rights education, unemployment and the role morality should play in upholding constitutional rights.
“We are very serious about having a moral conversation. No longer will we allow people to say that conversation must be limited to prayer or school, abortion or where you stand on sexuality,” State NAACP President Dr. William Barber said.
Social Justice Sunday is set to take place over three days starting Aug. 23.
