North Carolina Protests over Equity Spur Actions in New York

In North Carolina, the Republican legislature’s moves to slash public services and voting rights have brought thousands into the streets in a series of “Moral Mondays” protests. The action on February 8 (below) drew close to 80,000 people, in the largest civil rights rally in the South since the 1965 Selma-to-Montgomery march. The campaign has inspired a counterpart in NYC, targeting Albany for budget and policy decisions that increase economic inequality. For more info, follow Moral Mondays NYC on Facebook and Twitter.
