UU Justice NC's Friday Action Hour, Friday, May 24th at 11:00 am. We are in the height of the state legislative session, and many harmful bills will be voted on in the next two weeks. This week we will recap the votes that occurred on 5/22 including the Anti-Protest Bill HB 237. Then we take action on the bills still moving through the legislative process. This will include calling on Governor Cooper to veto the Anti-Immigration Bill HB 10 when it comes to his desk. Join via this Zoom link.

UU Justice NC's Friday Action Hour, Friday May 17th at 11:00am. This Friday, we'll dive into the bills that are moving right now in the state legislative short session, including updates on the anti-immigration bill HB10 and the anti-free speech bill HB942. We will also hear an in-depth briefing on the new Anti-Protest Bill HB 237. This bill claims to be geared towards "Unmasking Mobs and Criminals" but in actuality, is part of a wave of new anti-protest bills sweeping the country in response to Pro-Palestinian protests on college campuses.

UU Justice NC's Friday Action Hour, Friday May 10th at 11:00am - Legislative Briefing on HB 942 - the “SHALOM” Act with our partners at Carolina Jews for Justice. HB 942 is a bill quickly moving through the state legislature that would criminalize speaking out against Israeli policies and military conduct, using a highly contested and problematic definition of antisemitism adopted by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA). This Friday, Abby Lublin, Executive Director of Carolina Jews for Justice will help us unpack this bill and explain why it attacks free speech (the ACLU agrees!) and does not make the Jewish community safer. Join via this Zoom link.

UU Justice NC's Friday Action Hour, Friday May 3rd at 11:00am. The 2024 Legislative Session has begun, and we believe that the first priority of General Assembly leadership will be to pass a bill that would require all NC sheriffs to cooperate with ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement). Join us this Friday for a briefing on HB10 with information from our friends at Comite de Accion Popular. Then we will get to work, making calls to our elected officials speaking out against this harmful bill. Join via this Zoom link.
