And NCWU was there to commemorate, and celebrate, what we’ve helped build here in North Carolina since that first group of clergy was arrested for civil disobedience at the NC General Assembly on April 29, 2013.
If you had told us then that the North Carolina progressive community would have been able to hold large weekly protests for more than two months, we wouldn’t have dared believe you. We have a long road ahead of us, and many challenges, as we continue the struggle for a more just and equal North Carolina for all. And we will experience set-backs and frustrations from time to time; but there is still a lot to celebrate in this movement.
Tara Romano, President, spoke at the rally on women’s issues, highlighting the differences between what could have been this session and what we’ve seen so far (hint: we’re a bit disappointed).
