We will not let another election cycle go by where politicians can run for office without talking about systemic racism, including voter suppression, the attacks on immigrant and native communities, and the mass criminalization and incarceration of our communities; without talking about systemic poverty and the necessity of programs of social uplift; without talking about the war economy and ecological devastation that are blighting our people and the places we live; without talking about the distorted moral narrative that ignores the needs of the people.
Rev Dr Willam J Barber II and Rev Dr Liz Theoharis will Moderate the Hearing. Candidates for elected office in US House 13, candidates for state-wide judicial posts, and candidates for NC Senate and House districts which overlap with US House District 13 have all been invited to come and LISTEN to people directly impacted by federal and state policies which maintain systemic racism, systemic poverty, ecological devastation and militarism. Candidates will not address the Hearing nor bring their campaign literature. They will come to listen to us.
