EDUCATION - Public School Workers Bill of Rights

Everyone is saying that these are unprecedented times. But the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and economic shutdown has exposed what we already knew: privatizers and their supporters in our legislature have been starving our schools to death. We’ve already been fighting for years to stop legislators from prioritizing corporate tax breaks over funding our futures. Now vultures are circling as politicians push us to choose between our children’s and our communities’ safety or our ability to make a living.

ECOLOGY - Help End The Duke Monopoly

North Carolinians are suffering. Due to the broken nature of our monopoly electricity system, our residents and businesses are facing:

  • Constant Rate Hikes as Duke Energy uses its customers’ hard-earned money to rig the system into allowing construction of unnecessary fracked gas pipelines and power plants;
  • Environmental Devastation from repeated floods and worsening hurricanes, while Duke evades responsibility for cleaning up its toxic coal ash pollution and promotes methane from hog waste as “renewable” energy as that waste poisons communities;
  • Pollution of Our Political System as Duke Energy executives abuse their monopoly power with campaign money and undue political influence;
  • Lack of Choice and Stalled Job Growth while cheaper clean and renewable energy rapidly replaces fossil fuels and drives economic development in states with competitive energy markets.
