More Bills from the NCGA to Hurt the Poor

On October 10, the NC General Assembly majority overrode Gov. Cooper’s veto on several bills.

Letter in Mountain Xpress on Health Care

As of Dec. 1, 600,000 uninsured North Carolinians will become eligible for lifesaving health care.

It is an immoral effort to dilute and silence the voices of people of color, low-income North Carolinians, and other marginalized communities, so that the General Assembly can continue its war on education and the environment, and against Black and brown folks, women, LGBTQ+ people, and the poor.
