Issue Position

Location: Unknown

When I served as the Chair of the NC Black Leadership Caucus we adopted a position in opposition to the death penalty and supported a moratorium on executions. We partnered with the Carolina Justice Policy Center and People of Faith Against the Death Penalty, and contacted legislators to encourage them to support the moratorium. I called together the NAACP, the Urban League, People of Faith, and key legislators for a press conference at the legislature to ensure that all legislators knew of the groups' united position. I traveled to other cities and contacted officials to help secure resolutions in support of the moratorium.
