RALEIGH — North Carolina civil rights leaders on Tuesday urged Republicans now in charge of state government to make reducing poverty their top priority, saying legislators and Gov. Pat McCrory have moral and constitutional obligations to do so.

Leaders also brought attention to their annual “people’s assembly” walking rally next month in downtown Raleigh.
