Thank-You Cardwriting Drop-In – Asheville
July 29 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm EDT
Several legislators in the House are under tremendous pressure to override the Governor’s budget veto but so far are standing strong. So we’re joining with others across the state in a quick campaign led by the NC Justice Center to send hand-written thank-you notes to these reps and show them we’ve got their backs.
Drop by any time between 5:30 and 7:00 Monday evening to write thank-you notes to these reps. We’ll have pre-addressed cards, stamps, and sample texts.
Why does this matter? The Governor has vetoed the budget sent to him by the Republican-led majority because they refused to include Medicaid Expansion or adequate funding for education. We want a budget that SUPPORTS healthcare and education. So we need to support the Governor’s veto and get back in budget negotiations again.
If you can’t make it Monday night but can write some thank-you notes this week, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll arrange a way to hand off some cards or we can give you the names and addresses and you can send cards on your own.
Let’s stand together in solidarity for a good budget for NC!
