Welcome Progress NC!

The progressive advocacy movement in North Carolina welcomes a new teammate today — a new nonprofit called Progress NC

The group held an event in downtown Raleigh this morning to launch its “Pink Slip Truth Tour”  — a series of press/public briefings that will highlight the job layoffs in education that have resulted from the new state budget.

Be sure to look for an event in a town near yours in the coming days. Give ’em heck guys!
