What Can I Do After Charlottesville?

I have been at a loss for words watching the events in Charlottesville unfold all weekend. I’ve wanted to write something, but every time I try to put words on paper I find millions of competing thoughts and emotions making it too difficult to write anything coherent, let alone profound.

Thinking About Healthcare in August

Wait a second. Haven’t we been thinking about healthcare for the last 6+ months? Yes, of course we have, but here at Stronger NC we’ve decided to take activism under our control. What does that mean? While there will be plenty of crazy shenanigans from the White House and NCGA to react to, we want to take some time and focus each month on key issues we believe are important to all North Carolinians.  Democracy only works when voters are informed and empowered, so in order for that to happen we hope to provide the information you need. Starting this...
