Fair Courts Day of Action

  • 1 East Edenton Street Raleigh, NC, 27601 United States (map)

Bicentennial Plaza
1 East Edenton Street | Raleigh

At noon of Wednesday, January 10, the NC General Assembly will convene for a session in which judicial reform is expected to be a hot topic. For decades, the state's process of choosing judges has been through non-partisan elections by voters. Recently, the legislature has restored labels to party ballots in judicial races, and some top legislators are now favoring an appointive system rather than elections.

Join us to protest the proposed changes that would affect the independence of the state's judiciary. The day will begin with a press conference at Bicentennial Plaza, followed by a teach-in and training at the NC General Assembly Auditorium, and then attending lawmakers meetings, special session, and rally for fair courts. If you are in need of transportation, rides are available across the state. For more information, visit the event page here.
