Suggestion Sheet Writers Needed on a Rotating Basis

A typical suggestion sheet 1-2 pages, covering 3-5 topics, each with a summary and specific calls to action.

We'll supply practical tips. Use your own voice and style. 

Cut our National Carbon Footprint

Reports that Senator Manchin is opposed to all climate legislation must now be set aside. It seems Manchin and Majority Leader Schumer have introduced a version of the RECONCILIATION BILL, now called the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022.This is less sweeping than the Build Back Better version – it has less family support. But it cues up $370 billion to improve energy and transportation efficiency. It creates taxes that impact only those with incomes over $400K. It sets up a minimum corporate tax (15%) for large businesses. It enables Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices.

This is a promising bill. Let’s call or write our Representative and Senators to support it, because –uh, what else are they doing to combat inflation pressure? Or to get to a less-carbon-happy civilization? They go on break AUGUST 5TH, So let OUR SENATORS KNOW ASAP!

Learn about the Judicial Candidates

Our North Carolina Supreme Court Justices are chosen by partisan election. This year the NC Supreme Court is made up of 4 Democrats and 3 Republicans. Two Justices’ terms expire this year; they are both Democrats. It is vital that we keep a progressive majority on the court.
