3 -   “SOULS TO THE POLLS” March from Barbara Smalley-McMahan
The Raleigh-Apex NAACP invites the Wake County faith 
community to join us for the “SOULS TO THE POLLS”

All area ministers, rabbis and imams are asked to help 
lead the march, which begins at 3:15 p.m. on the Shaw 
University campus 118 E. South Street, just across
from the McDonalds on E. South St. 
We'll walk in solidarity with one another to Chavis
Heights Community Center located at 505 Martin 
Luther King, Jr. Boulevard.
We have a moral crisis in our state and there is a need 
for massive participation. Join us to exercise your 
right and civic duty to vote!
Please make plans now for your mosques, churches 
and synagogues to march with us.
IT’S OUR TIME / IT’S OUR VOTE!!!!
