Volunteers Lobbying On ‘Moral Tuesday’

By Danny Hooley Posted May 26, 2014 at 11:13 am

Memorial Day may have pre-empted Moral Monday activities this week, but only for a day.

Volunteers for the movement will convene at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday at Halifax Mall behind Raleigh’s General Assembly building.

Rather than hold the usual early-evening rally, protesters opposing the policies of the Republican-controlled General Assembly will receive a policy briefing on the mall.

At around 2:30 p.m., volunteers will split into small groups that will visit legislators in their offices.

Expansion of Medicaid, restoration of the Earned Income Tax Credit, extension of unemployment benefits and support for public school teachers are just a few of the topics planned for these citizen lobbying sessions.
