Tell Sen Berger, Speaker Moore & Gov Cooper:
Protect NC workers & communities from COVID-19!
COVID-19 is exposing the social, economic, and political crisis our communities have been bearing for decades and more. While this reality is distressing, we’re also no strangers to organizing ourselves and our loved ones to make sure none of us get left behind.
We, a broad coalition directly impacted people and organizations, are launching the North Carolina People’s Platform for Social and Economic Survival and Beyond. We call on the Governor and the North Carolina General Assembly to take action.
North Carolina’s People’s Platform for Social and Economic Survival and Beyond
We are in the midst of a global pandemic, witnessing the devastating consequences of COVID-19 on countries and communities across the world. This health crisis is exposing, in no uncertain terms, the social, economic, and political crisis that our communities have been bearing for decades and more. Our response to this moment, and the grave injustices that are now amplifying its consequences, offers us the opportunity to move toward a North Carolina where all people can thrive. At this point, it is impossible to extract the crisis caused by COVID-19 from the massive social and economic inequality that laid the groundwork for the disproportionate spread of devastation we can anticipate in our state. Our way forward, therefore, must prioritize solutions that rectify both.
