NC RJA from People of Faith Against the Death Penalty

It's a Moral Issue & We Told Them So

The bill to repeal the NC Racial Justice Act, S9, was rescheduled for a vote on the NC House floor today, Thursday, June 16 during the session starting at 10:00 a.m.

Meanwhile, more than two dozen religious leaders and state legislators from across North Carolina appeared at our press conference at the NC General Assembly Tuesday, June 14.

We all laid out the moral failure that repealing the NC Racial Justice Act would be.

Here are some television news stories:

* Triangle News 14 here

Perhaps these may be relevant at some point on the vote or rescheduling of the same? (Strangely S9 which is attached to the Repeal issues of the RJA has been also equated with H12 ???

If so, I hope some of you are better reading the following than I am:
