CWA of North Carolina: 17th Annual Day at the Capital

May 23, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This event will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Legislative Building.  This year will be a very special event as we are honored to have North Carolina Values Coalition co-sponsoring the event with us.

Each year, our members and friends who join us attend a 30-minute devotion and prayer time at the Senate Chapel, observe the North Carolina General Assembly in session, and visit our state senators and representatives.  Additionally, we will be distributing pastor and evangelical leader Jim Garlow’s book, Well Versed, to all 170 state legislators, as well as the governor and nine Council of State members.

We take seriously the opportunity to speak with our legislators regarding crucial upcoming bills. We will brief attendees on the following two bills before they visit their legislators:

  • HB527 “Restore/Preserve Campus Free Speech” — the signature issue championed by Lt. Governor Dan Forest which is designed to maintain freedoms and bolster speech protections across the UNC system and directs the UNC Board of Governors to adopt a campus-wide speech policy to protect and strengthen the right of free speech on college campuses.
  • HB910Human Trafficking: Resistance and Rescue” — designed to establish a pilot program for student awareness about the dangers and signs of human trafficking, train law enforcement officers, and appropriate funds to implement the program and provide shelter beds and mental health services for victims.

Talking points will be provided for you to distribute to your legislators.

Lunch will be on your own in the legislative cafeteria or snack bar.

We hope you will join us! We have more influence among our legislators when many of us are speaking up together for our Biblical values.
