Emergency Civic Engagement
Saturday, July 14, 2012
Wilson, NC & Winston-Salem, NC
"We" is still the most important word in the social justice vocabulary and "We" have no choice but to build the largest statewide grassroots voter registration campaign in the history of this state. But WE NEED YOU and HISTORY NEEDS YOU, the local freedom fighters, the experienced and inexperienced to join us in this urgent endeavor.
On Saturday, July 14 we plan to set the stage for this massive campaign that only the North Carolina NAACP can undertake. We must register over 40,000 new voters before November. The Emergency Civic Engagement & GOTV Summit is where you'll get the tools to make this happen.
