On March 14, extremist politicians in North Carolina will try to get the state Supreme Court to take away our landmark victory against gerrymandering and impose limits on our freedom to vote.
We can’t let these politicians silence our voices. It’s time to stand up and speak out together. Join us for a People’s Rally at the NC Capitol on Tuesday, March 14 at 11:00 a.m. in Raleigh!
How we got here: Just last year, the people of North Carolina won a historic victory for democracy when the NC Supreme Court ruled partisan gerrymandering violates our constitutional freedoms. But now, a new Republican majority on the NC Supreme Court is radically breaking from precedent and putting our victory against gerrymandering in jeopardy.
On March 14, the Republican-dominated court is rehearing our gerrymandering case at the request of Republican legislators. The same Republican legislators who broke the law with their illegal voting maps, and who want to overturn our victory against gerrymandering so they can control our freedom to vote.
Simply put: the future of fair, free, and accessible elections is on the line right now in North Carolina. It’s time for we the People to rally for our rights!
On the same day our case is being reheard, please join us on Tuesday, March 14 at 11:00 a.m. in Raleigh for the People’s Rally at the NC Capitol.
While our legal team makes a powerful defense of our rights inside the courtroom, we’ll be outside the court with a coalition of pro-democracy advocacy groups and North Carolinians from throughout the state to speak out, organize, and show the strength of our grassroots, pro-voter movement.
We’ll gather on the south end of the NC Capitol grounds (see map), directly across the street from the NC Supreme Court, to make clear that we the People won’t be silenced by extremist politicians.
This is a critical time for our democracy. Join us for this historic People’s Rally and make your voice heard!
