The state chapter of the NAACP is holding a news conference Wednesday morning to talk about a Moral March on Raleigh on Feb. 8 as well as other protests.
More than 900 people were arrested last year during "Moral Monday" protests at the state legislature.

The NAACP is encouraging similar protests in neighboring South Carolina and Georgia.
