“Fair Courts, Fair Votes” Month of Action (May 18-June 18). 6 Ways You Can Stop the Next Attacks on Our Democracy – Step One

North Carolina’s District and Superior Court Judges are elected by voters in judicial districts. A plan to redraw these districts (House Bill 717), sponsored by bail bondsman Rep. Justin Burr, who was just defeated in the recent primary election and will not return in January 2019, can be taken up at any time during the the current 2018 short session. HB717 is being roundly criticized by judges, the legal community, and the public as part of a broader attack on the courts in 2017.* In December, Republican Senate leaders proposed their own plan to redraw judicial districts, which is also being criticized for how it was introduced and what it does.
Right now, the legislature is back in session and is taking your input on these and other bold legislative changes to how judges are selected. It’s time to make our voices heard!

    The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival will necessarily be a multi-year undertaking. The Summer of 2017 through the Spring of 2018 will be used as the public launching of the Campaign. By engaging in highly publicized civil disobedience and direct action over a 6-week period in at least 25 states and the District of Columbia during the Spring of 2018, the Campaign will force a serious national examination of the enmeshed evils of systemic racism, poverty, militarism and environmental devastation during a key election year while strengthening and connecting informed and committed grassroots leadership in every state, increasing their power to continue this fight long after June 2018.
