Sight & Sounds from the Backwards Budget .5K (video)

To raise awareness about the legislature’s “Backwards Budget,” the Together NC coalition hosted the first annual Backwards Budget .5K run on Tuesday.

About 100 participants braved the mid-day heat to run backwards around the Halifax Mall behind the NC General Assembly — shining a spotlight on the legislature’s failure to adequately fund public education, preventative health care, environmental programs, and tobacco prevention.

    Thank you for coming out in the heat with your imagination and your organizing to show with human bodies that our state lawmakers are taking North Carolina backwards with this awful budget. Whoever voted for these people, please take notice, and choose differently next election season.
