Think our judges should be fair, independent, and removed from political pressure? Unfortunately, politicians in Raleigh are trying to gain partisan control over the courts and rig the system in their favor. First, they canceled primary elections for judges, and now the politicians are planning to return in January 2018 to cancel judicial elections and simply appoint their political friends to fill the bench and tilt the scales of justice in their favor.
Right now, members of the North Carolina General Assembly are home in their districts for the holidays. And we have a chance to tell them directly to oppose this brazen conspiracy to rig the justice system for partisan control.
Join us Saturday, December 9th, at 1 p.m., at The Forsyth County Central Library (660 W 5th St, Winston-Salem, NC 27101) for the fifth of our series of Fair Courts Town Halls.
During the 90-minute town hall, hosted by Democracy North Carolina, NC NAACP, NC Voters for Clean Elections (NCVCE), Progress NC and RISE Together Piedmont Triad, local legislators, and other experts will be invited to address our community’s concerns, and we’ll provide the latest ways to help you fight back for fair courts.
