In honor of the upcoming Moral March in Raleigh on February 14, here’s a piece from The Sharing Project about private property and inequity. It’s in The Huffington Post in the politics section.
Hey! The biggest protest in North Carolina history – and the biggest in the South since 1965 – is happening on February 8!!!
Despite the fact that North Carolina has one of the largest unemployment rates in the country, we’ve decided to cut unemployment benefits and reduce the number of weeks of eligibility. We’ve declined expanded federal funds for unemployment benefits and for Medicaid, passed laws that make it more difficult for many people to vote, and enacted legislation that is effectively re-segregating our public schools.
Is this what sharing looks like these days? Is this what we want to teach our kids?
I will be in Raleigh – with a movie camera – and participating in the Moral March.
I hope to see y’all there!!!
