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

To raise awareness about the legislature’s “Backwards Budget,” the Together NC coalition [1] 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.
