Governor Cooper, WE BELIEVE . . .

- We believe that the Catawba Casino will forever alter and damage the character and landscape of Cleveland County.
- We believe
that this casino will contribute to the destruction of families through gambling addictions, domestic violence, and sex trafficking that so often accompanies the casino industry.
- We believe
that the United States Department of the Interior made an unlawful ruling to allow the the land for the casino to be put in trust.
- We believe
that the Catawba Nation has presumed upon you and your esteemed office by having a ground breaking ceremony BEFORE a compact can be signed.
-We believe
that due process demands that the Cherokees have a right to be fully heard in the courts before the State of North Carolina approves this unlawful action.
-We believe
the COVID-19 pandemic necessitates a slower approach on this issue so we can ensure that people in our community can be fully informed of this unlawful action

If you believe that the Catawba Casino that is proposed in Kings Mountain, NC is harmful for our county and state, consider signing this petition. If you believe all Indian tribes should be treated equally and lawfully, then consider signing this petition. If your faith teaches you that “the love of money is the root of all evil,” then sign this petition to oppose an industry that thrives on this weakness in men.
