1. NC VALUES: We endorse Baker for NC House 82 & Nichols for NC Senate 37. Watch our latest episode of the voice to learn why.
Join us every week for another episode of “The NC Values Voice”, a weekly 30-minute interview by Executive Director, Tami Fitzgerald, with a special guest. The NC Values Voice is aired on Facebook Live every Wednesday night at 7:30pm. Our goal is to inform and motivate our statewide coalition members with current, relevant information.
On this week's program we welcomed two amazing women who we expect to be real leaders in their caucuses as well as champions for North Carolina values. It is with high honor that the North Carolina Values Coalition endorses Dr. Kristin Baker for House District 82 and Sonja Nichols for Senate District 37. We hope you'll tune in to hear from these ladies and why we endorse them on this week's episode of The Voice.

3. TYLER BROOKS: The Court of Appeals has reinstated the Voter ID Amendment. Check out this case analysis and NC Values' Amicus Brief.
Judge Chris Dillon, who wrote the opinion for the majority that reinstates Voter ID is running for re-election to the Court of Appeals this year. Remember Chris Dillon when you vote!
The NC Values Coalition was the only organization to file an Amicus Brief on behalf of Berger, Moore, and North Carolina Voters. If you're interested in reading the Amicus Brief that was filed in the NCAAP v. Berger Moore NC Voter ID case, click here.
Note: Unfortunately, this ruling is too late to affect this election, because absentee balloting has already begun.

WEEKLY PRAYER: LIBERTY
LORD, you have blessed us with a spiritual liberty that is so wonderful and beyond description, that it can only be understood through experiencing a life-giving relationship with Christ. However, we also recognize that in your grace, you have blessed our country with a political liberty that enables us to openly proclaim the experience of a life lived in the freedom of the Gospel.
LORD, as individuals and as a nation, may we never take the inalienable right of religious freedom for granted. Right now our country has faced a rapid increase in the number of attacks made against this cherished right. We have seen groups across our public arena increase in boldness and frequency their smears against religious liberty. They claim it is bigotry, when we know it is the security of the greatest of all possible loves.
Be with your people and our country as it continues to protect the constitutional right protected by our nation's Founders. Be with legislators and the Supreme Court, as they determine through their actions the protection of this particular and fundamental freedom.
“It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery." (Galatians 5:1)
"For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another." (Galatians 5:13)
"Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God." (1 Peter 2:16)
