To say that 2020 has been a year of challenges is an understatement.
Thanks to you, here is some of what we accomplished in 2020:
- Helped working people and immigrant communities navigate the challenges of COVID-19 via “know-your-rights” trainings
- Uplifted the need Medicaid expansion with a digital multistate vigil calling on our elected officials to act
- Assisted 300-500 participants per information session to call attention to issues on housing, utilities, unemployment, and childcare issues throughout the state
- Worked on 61 legal cases impacting hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians
As the late Representative John Lewis reminded us, “Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year; it is the struggle of a lifetime.”
Let’s rise together for a better North Carolina!
