by John Hinton
The local and NC chapters of the NAACP demanded Monday that U.S. Sen. Richard Burr, R-NC, hold a town hall to discuss the Senate Republican health care bill with his constituents.
The Rev. Alvin Carlisle, the president of the Winston-Salem branch of the NAACP, read a letter demanding the town hall to more than 250 protesters who gathered for a rally outside of Burr’s office in Winston-Salem.
