Reaching Out to Those Affected by Hurricane Ian: Donate to the UUA’s Disaster Relief Fund

From Our Partners UU Justice Ministry NC
FRIDAY ACTION HOUR: October 14, 11am
Moore vs. Harper Presentation with Common Cause NC –  The next major challenge to American democracy comes from North Carolina. Experts say an extreme interpretation of the Constitution by the Supreme Court in North Carolina’s Moore v. Harper redistricting case would make it even easier for state legislatures to suppress the vote, draw gerrymandered election districts, and subvert election results, among other concerns. This Friday, UU Justice NC is thrilled to welcome Bob Phillips, Executive Director of Common Cause NC to Friday Action Hour. As a lead plaintiff in the case, he will provide an in-depth look at what’s being argued by Republican lawmakers in December, its potential impacts on our elections, and what North Carolinians can do to fight back.
