Friends Committee on North Carolina Legislation is excited to be starting our second year. In anticipation of the 2021 legislative session, (mid-January-July 2021), we invite you to join us for a timely workshop, January 13, 7 – 8 p.m., to learn how our NC Legislature functions and how to contact your representatives. Bill Rowe of the NC Justice Center will be a presenter, and the program includes an interactive Q&A session. For more info email us at info@fcncl.org.

News from the Policy Committee.

Check out our website’s Policy Committee’s Fact Sheets. They reflect our priorities for legislative reforms in Healthcare; Criminal Justice Reform; Voting Ethics and Integrity; and Environmental Protections and Climate Change Mitigation. We hope you will use them as you advocate (by mail, email, phone call, zoom) and stay in touch with your legislators throughout the coming year. We continue to solicit help from Friends who have expertise in our priority areas. We also welcome help from those who have IT expertise; graphic design talent; or editing skills. Contact us at info@fcncl.org if you want to donate or contribute to our mission in any way.
