Dear Legislators: A message to lawmakers

Protect and strengthen Unemployment Insurance

The NC Justice Center and Working America have partnered to gather feedback from workers on their experiences with the unemployment insurance system in North Carolina. Nearly 400 hand-written letters have been collected in recent weeks, and today, these letters will be delivered to the General Assembly.

The message of these letters is clear: North Carolinians value a strong unemployment insurance system and want legislators to protect this critical resource from cuts that would harm our state’s most vulnerable citizens.
