    Supreme Courts Block McCrory Appeal of 4th Circuit Ruling

    From the Wall Street Journal: A divided Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected an emergency appeal by North Carolina seeking to revive stricter state voting rules, which reduced the number of days for early voting and required photo identification at the polls. The high court, in a brief written order, declined to stay an appeals court ruling from July that struck down North Carolina’s Republican-backed voting rules. The appeals court found state lawmakers enacted the rules with the intent to discriminate against black voters. North Carolina’s bid to restore the rules for Election Day split the Supreme Court’s current eight justices along ideological lines, with four liberal justices rejecting the request and four conservative justices supporting the state. The even split meant a loss for the state’s appeal.

    The Epidemic

    AD_Opiate_Crisis_Quote_1.jpgThe Chatham County Democratic Party is excited to present a monthly series of movies on important issues.  We hope you will be able to join us on Saturday, January 27th for The Epidemic, an episode from the America Divided series, at the Pittsboro Roadhouse.  Entry is free.  The Road House menu will be available if you want to order lunch or a snack.  

    The Epidemic – Addiction and Deindustrialization  In the 21st century, we have seen the withering of middle-class life in America. Manufacturing, which once held out the promise of a middle-class life for those with a high school education, has shed five million jobs since 2000. Now, as Americans grapple with the growing inequality, something startling is happening to working class white America: an epidemic of suicide and drug and alcohol-related deaths across the heartland. Since 1999, this epidemic has resulted in nearly half a million early deaths — a figure comparable to all the lives lost to AIDS in the US. In “The Epidemic,” Peter Sarsgaard — whose own family has battled with drug addiction — travels to Dayton, Ohio, to investigate how the city, once the very definition of industrial invention and middle-class America, has become the epicenter of an epidemic and a symbol of our age of inequality.

    Doors open at 12:30, Movie at 12:45.  Run time approximately 60 minutes.

    CCDP supports CORA Food Pantry.  We will be collecting donations of food for CORA at each screening.   Here is a list of most needed items.
