Together NC, a coalition of organizations – including the NC State AFL-CIO – committed to promoting wise policy choices for shared prosperity, is organizing a series of town hall discussions on the necessity of public investments in North Carolina.
Our state government has to fix a large budget shortfall that – if the wrong choices are made in Raleigh – threatens to undercut essential public services needed now more than ever.
It’s critical that elected officials hear from folks in their communities about the importance of public programs and services so they can make budget decisions that support communities and families and do not undermine the state’s economic recovery.
The institutions North Carolina families rely on, education, health care, unemployment insurance, and housing assistance, to name a few, are in jeopardy this year.
