Alamance County has been hopping recently with progressive activity. Though it's a often a red county, it is nestled on 40 between the Triangle and the Triad. It went blue for Senator Hagan last time. It's home to Elon University. And in the past week they've been busy.
Here are a few photos from a Story of America film and discussion in Saxapahaw last week and from a Moral Monday in Burlington earlier today featuring speakers on voting rights, women's rights, immigration reform, LGBT equality with support from the local LGBT student group at Elon and the Alamance County PFLAG, other important issues, and Rev. Gatewood as the keynote speaker from the NAACP.
