North Carolina’s Moral Monday protest movement is coming to Georgia.

The Georgia NAACP is organizing its first Moral Monday rally at 4 p.m. today outside the state capitol to urge Gov. Nathan Deal to accept federal funding to expand Medicaid. Rallies on subsequent Mondays will focus on other issues.

The NAACP describes Moral Monday Georgia as “a multiracial, multi-issue coalition of citizens working for positive change for the public good.”

Moral Mondays started in North Carolina last year in response to Republicans’ education cuts and voter ID law.
