Last week, several activists were arrested in an act of civil disobedience in opposition to anti-immigrant, anti-poor HB 318. This action was the culmination of weeks of protests, phone calls, petitions, and letters that fell on deaf ears when Governor McCrory signed this bill into law on Wednesday. We thank all of you for participating in this fight and know that this is only the beginning.
If everybody who came to Fiesta yesterday takes action today, we have a chance to stop HB 318! Call and email Speaker Tim Moore now to request that he halt this bill in the House.
