Progressive advocates to speak in Greenville on March 8

After successful stops in Fayetteville, Asheville and Winston-Salem, the “out of control” tour is heading to Greenville on Thursday March 8.

Please join N.C. Policy Watch and other progressive allies at a public forum that will explore: how North Carolina’s extreme right-wing General Assembly is turning back the clock, who’s bankrolling its agenda, and what it means for our lives.

Featured speakers include MaryBe McMillan of the N.C. AFL-CIO, Chris Kromm of the Institute for Southern Studies, Chris Fitzsimon N.C. Policy Watch, and Jake Geller-Goad from Democracy North Carolina.

You’ll have a chance to ask questions and share your perspective, too.

Here’s the where and when:

Thursday, March 8th at 7:OO PM
Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greenville NC
131 Oakmont Drive Greenville, NC 27858

Hope to see you there!

    I look at it an entirely different way. The legislature is correcting the out of control policies that were enacted by the Democrats. We can’t afford them anymore.

    That’s right Frank, up is down and down is up. Who needs education and environmental protections any way?

    I would love to attend the meeting, but I’m watching the paint dry in my new kitchen that night.
