RALEIGH, NC (AP) — An organization committed to ending mass incarceration in North Carolina and demanding racial equity in criminal justice has called out Democratic Attorney General Josh Stein.

Emancipate NC held a news conference Tuesday to release a letter that rebuked the Democrat and accused him of falling short in protecting civil rights of wrongly accused defendants and those on death row.

Stein is considered a fellow liberal and sympathetic to concerns of racial justice advocates.

He narrowly run reelection in November and co-chaired a racial equity task force that offered over 100 recommendations.

Stein’s office said he’s working to get those recommendations implemented.
