OTHER EVENTS & OPPORTUNITIES:
Do you know about the Moore v. Harper Supreme Court Case?
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. You may not know that the “Harper” in the case is Becky Harper, a UU from Raleigh! Below are opportunities to learn more about this important case directly from Common Cause NC, a lead plaintiff in the case. Learn more…Friday, October 14th at 11:00am at UU Justice NC’s Friday Action Hour. Zoom Link.
