(BET) – North Carolina needs more Black federal judges, the NAACP says. In an effort to secure more African-American officials for positions on the federal bench, North Carolina’s largest civil rights organization is calling on the state’s two senators to nominate them. On Monday, leaders of the state chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, along with allied groups, kicked off a campaign aimed at securing the nomination of a Black judge to the Eastern District of North Carolina, where roughly half the state’s African-American population resides. The campaign, whose initiation took place outside the federal courthouse in Greenville, urged supporters to call the offices of U.S. Senators Kay Hagan and Richard Burr. Both are responsible for suggesting names of judges to be considered as nominees.
