Moral Mondays begin at DC Council

On the 12th of September, DC social activists and religious leaders began holding “Moral Mondays” at the DC Council demanding that miniumum wages be raised, public housing be perserved, schools and public property not be privatized, mass incarceration be ended, and more. Moral Mondays began in North Carolina as a protest against right-wing and racist policies of the state government such as restricting voting rights and cutting social programs. In North Carolina Moral Mondays are known for civil disobedience, DC councilmembers should consider the possibility that failure to address the needs of the people could force the use of civil disobedience here in DC as well.

This has made the news all the way back in N Carolina, with a Charlotte Observer story about Moral Monday spreading to DC and 30 other states.
