Following is an action alert from the People of Faith Against the Death Penalty regarding the Racial Justice Act which is on the verge of being repealed by Governor Pat Mc Crory in North Carolina. Click this link to learn more and act!
The first bill to repeal the RJA was introduced on the anniversary of Martin Luther King’s assassination. Yesterday the NC Senate finalized the repeal of the RJA – on the 50th anniversary of Medgar Evers’ assassination.
The bill now heads to NC Gov. Pat McCrory’s desk. He could sign it any time.
Don’t let him sign it without letting him know how you feel.
It doesn’t matter where you live. Tell the governor that to repeal the Racial Justice Act is to say he does not care about racism. Tell him that will be his legacy. He doesn’t have to stand with those who would insult the legacies of national treasures like Dr. King and Mr. Evers.
