NAACP calls on US Attorney General to address Voter ID Bill

Posted: Updated:

NAACP leaders are calling on US Attorney General Eric Holder to address the new North Carolina Voter I. D. bill.

They made that announcement today at a news conference at the NAACP headquarters in Greenville. Tomorrow thirteen rallies are planned across the state, one for reach congressional district.

They say they want to expose the "immoral public policy of the general assembly" they believe is affecting the people of North Carolina.

Tomorrow's rallies take place on the 50th anniversary of the iconic march on Washington.

"Back then in the march on Washington we were fighting for jobs and justice. For voting rights and equal rights. Today here in NC we are fighting to hold on to many of the things that were won by people 50 years ago" said NC NAACP President Reverend William Barber.

The rallies come after months of "Moral Monday" protests.
