YADKINVILLE, N.C. (AP) — The North Carolina NAACP is taking its protest of legislative action to Yadkinville.

The civil rights group said its Moral Monday and the Forward Together Movement will be at the Yadkin County Courthouse at 7 p.m. Monday.

The NAACP has been protesting actions by the Republican-dominated General Assembly for weeks. The group says it’s concerned about what it calls attacks on teachers, unemployed workers, immigrants and voting rights, among other issues.

Weekly protests during the 2013 legislative session resulted in the arrests of more than 900 people. The civil rights group has moved protests to various parts of the state since lawmakers ended their session in July.

Some Republican leaders have criticized the protests as unhelpful.
