I sure hope all of you had a great start to the New Year. I found out at Christmas I will be a grandfather in August so I am still smiling. The weather has been hard on me so far this winter like so many of you guys out there but time marches on.
The NAACP will be holding a “Moral March on Raleigh” Saturday February 8th with 9:30 am assemble time and a march from 10:30 am.I urge you to come on out and show support for NCCPN and the NAACP with your presence. There will be a very big crowd for you to blend in with if you desire. Members from the more than 125 North Carolina State Conference NAACP branches, youth councils, high school and college chapters from the four corners of the state and members and friends of over 150 other social justice organizations make up the “Historic Thousands on Jones Street (HKonJ) People’s Assembly Coalition!” This demonstration was started in February 2007 with an annual date of the second Saturday in February. The first event had 3,500 folks show up and has grown larger ever since. I have asked wannabepainfree if he will be the liaison for NCCPN to the NAACP. His job is to be aware of the NAACP goings on and alert us when we can help out. He will be in charge of helping NCCPN gain position thru recognition of our shared goals with the NAACP & advising them on how we can help reach the goals that are set.
There are other organizations out there that would possibly benefit from our help. You guys might be a member of another organization out there that fights for cannabis law change in NC or even nationally. Our organizations will only be stronger if we work together. No one needs to give up their organizations goals, just work together toward the mutual goals that we share. If you know of a group that can help advance the cause of medical cannabis in NC please consider becoming the liaison to that group to help both groups coordinate activities for our mutual benefit.
