Donate to the North Carolina Workers Relief Fund

Funds collected by the North Carolina AFL-CIO will be used to assist union members and their communities affected by the hurricane.

While we cannot make anyone whole, donating to the North Carolina Workers Relief Fund sends a message of solidarity and the knowledge that working people affected by this disaster are supported by Brothers and Sisters across the nation.
