This event is presented in conjunction with NC Policy Watch.
NC Policy Watch is a progressive, nonprofit and non-partisan public policy organization dedicated to changing the way elected officials debate important issues and, ultimately, to improving the quality of life for all North Carolinians. NC Policy Watch is an independent project of the NC Justice Center, North Carolina’s leading private, nonprofit anti-poverty organization. The two organizations share the same guiding objective—to bring about social, political and economic justice in North Carolina. Since its founding in 2004, NC Policy Watch has established itself as the state’s most prolific and influential progressive voice and a direct and effective counterpoint to the state’s conservative think tanks.
