Under the Dome

Next 'Moral Monday' protest will focus on numbers

Next week's "Moral Mondays" protest by the NAACP will be about numbers, Rev. William Barber Jr. said Thursday. Each protest has focused on a theme.

Monday's theme will be about the number of people that the organization says have been harmed by Republican legislators' economic actions, including ending some Medicaid funding and unemployment benefits. It will also be about the cost to the state for those policies.

A third theme will be about looking ahead to winding down the weekly protests after the General Assembly leaves town, expected to be sometime this month, and shifting the movement back home to mobilize across the state, Barber said.
