Under the Dome

Moral Mondays begin dispersing throughout state

Now that the Legislature is out of session and a final "Moral Monday" protest drew a record number of participants this week, organizers plan to spread the even to local communities.

On Aug. 5, a coalition of advocacy groups -- representing environmental, voting rights, health, the elderly, labor, religion and poverty interests -- plan to gather in a downtown Asheville park to keep the party going.

A familiar face at the Raleigh protests, Rev. William Barber II, president of the NAACP state chapter, will speak.

Of the people arrested in the protests in Raleigh, a sizable number were reportedly from Western North Carolina.
