The NC NAACP has endorsed an open letter to Gov. McCrory about the state’s decision to deny certain unemployment insurance benefits and expanded Medicaid coverage to hundreds of thousands of vulnerable North Carolinians, something we have covered extensively in RR. The letter was originally drafted by four good friends and distinguished colleagues of the Council: William Barber, William Turner, Rodney Sadler, and Carrie Bolton. The NAACP is seeking additional signatures from religious leaders and other people of faith prior to delivering the letter to the Governor on Tuesday, November 26, in anticipation of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving.
I have signed the letter and would welcome having you join me if you have not already done so. You can read and sign it here.
