What It Is

The Moral Week of Action is an offshoot of the North Carolina NAACP's Moral Monday movement. Beginning Friday, Aug. 22, activists in 13 states are organizing around different social justice issues each day. In addition to state house rallies, activities include town hall meetings, press conferences and teach-ins. There also will be daily voter registration canvasses.
