Action Alert: Urge Senator Berger and Speaker Moore to Expand Medicaid!

We are joining together with a diverse group of organizations for two weeks of action to raise our voices collectively to Senator Berger and Speaker Moore and tell them, "No more excuses. Expand Medicaid now for North Carolina!" Each day different organizations will be making phone calls and sending emails. Our day is Friday, April 17. COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted African Americans and low-income people at an alarming rate. Closing the Medicaid coverage gap will expand health coverage to those who need it most. Can you call Senator Berger and Speaker Moore today and urge them to expand Medicaid to save our lives and protect our hospitals? Please call them using this patch-through

Ask Gov. Cooper to protect the incarcerated

Time is running out for those incarcerated in North Carolina prisons, prison guards and staff and surrounding communities. Prisons and those housed within are particularly vulnerable to an outbreak of COVID-19. It is imperative that Governor Roy Cooper use his powers of clemency, reprieve, and commutation to significantly reduce the prison population especially the elderly, frail, and those who pose no significant public safety risk.

Tell the NCGA you support vote-by-mail

Rally your friends and family to do the same. For more background, we encourag

Read this letter from NC NAACP President Rev. Dr. T. Anthony Spearman to Governor Roy Cooper, and then take action by contacting the governor's office to protect the incarcerated. COVID-19 crosses all boundaries affecting North Carolinians within all the various communities that exist. Governor Cooper declared North Carolina in a state of emergency on March 6, 2020 by enacting Executive Order 116. One of the communities that have no control over their safety and lives are those that are incarcerated in our prisons, jails and detention centers. The goal is to flood the Governor’s Office with calls in support of this action. You can simply say, “I’m calling to request that Governor Cooper woul
