Rebuilding after Hurricane Florence
September 16, 2018
Over the past week, North Carolina has been devastated by the historic flooding of Hurricane Florence. While we grieve for the incredible loss suffered by so many, we are also heartened by the outpouring of kindness from North Carolinians who have stepped up to help neighbors in need. In time, we will rebuild our homes, but it's this generous spirit and resiliency that make our community unbreakable.

General Assembly to hold surprise session to Change ballot language ahead of election
July 22, 2018
In yet another brazen power grab, the Republican-led General Assembly will hold a surprise session to write the descriptions of proposed constitutional amendments appearing on the November ballot. This responsibility previously fell to a three person, bipartisan commission designed to avoid political bias. This action is a shameless attempt to mislead voters by disguising controversial ballot initiatives, including a voter-ID amendment designed to surpress voter turnout among people of color, young people, and people living in urban areas.
Rising Sea Levels due to climate Change are costing the coast millions every year
July 26, 2018
Protecting our homes and livelihoods from the affects of climate change should be a commonsense, bipartisan effort -- yet, a new study has found that since 2005, North Carolinians have suffered $582 Million in property loss due to rising sea-levels. We can and should be doing more to protect our beautiful coastlines.
Income inequality in NOrth Carolina is worse than prior to the great recession
July 20, 2018
While the economy has recovered significantly since the 2007 Great Recession, the income gap between the wealthy and the poor in North Carolina is the worst it's been in nearly a century. Today, the wealthiest 1% of North Carolinians take home over 20 times the income of the remaining 99%. Economic policies and tax breaks that heavily favor corporations and the wealthy have created wealth imbalance rivaling the Great Depression. North Carolina needs policies for working families that promotes economic mobility and educational opportunities.
