The State Progressive Caucus will meet this Saturday June 8 at 10 a.m. before the Democratic Party’s State Executive Council meeting in Raleigh, Enloe High School, 128 Clarendon Crescent, Raleigh. The caucus will meet in Room 1202.
We need to elect a new 2nd Vice President and did not have the required notice time to do so at the May meeting. This person will be responsible for growing the caucus’ membership and increasing our rate of member retention. If you would like to run for this position, you can be nominated/self-nominate from the floor. If you cannot attend, email us to request a proxy: firstname.lastname@example.org.

ACTION ALERT #2
lawmakers need to hear the stories of people impacted by the opioid
crisis who are unable to access care. Chase Holleman is a social worker
in Guilford County who visits people after they have survived an
overdose. Hear what he has to say about how closing the coverage gap
would dramatically impact the people he works with everyday. Then take
two minutes to email Chase’s video to your NC representative.
Here is the link: Close the Gap
Closing the coverage gap can keep families together.
