Defending Democracy with Informed Community Action in WNC

To give victory to the right, not bloody bullets, but peaceful ballots only, are necessary.

— Abraham Lincoln

Education Action Team

The Education Action Team seeks to uphold the values of access, equity and opportunity for all students through a vigorous system of public education. We do so by fighting private and corporate use of education funds, overall reduction of education funding, and threats to access, equity and civil rights.

The Senate is voting on their awful health care bill tomorrow – and this could be our best chance to stop it once and for all. If this vote passes, Congress will be on its way to stripping away coverage and severely hiking costs for older Americans. We must do everything in our power to stop it today. Even if you’ve called before, Sen. Burr and Sen. Tillis need to hear from you today, before they vote. Call (202) 224-3121 right now, and tell them to stand up for you and kill this higher-cost, less-coverage bill, once and for all.

We support a system of public education that supports a strong democracy. We work to halt all efforts to divert public education funds through vouchers and similar efforts.

Education Funding

We believe all public schools should have sufficient funds to equitably serve all students. We support strong public funding of public schools and increased funding to North Carolina schools.

Equity/Access/Civil Rights

Our aim is to ensure equitable access to a strong public education for all students. We oppose efforts to reduce the strength of the US Education Department’s Office of Civil Rights, while promoting federal support for equity within and between states for all students.
