The NC Council of Churches is co-sponsor of a town hall meeting, Bring Our War Dollars Home and Restore Our Communities, which takes place Feb. 20 at 11 a.m. in the Legislative Building Auditorium, 16 W. Jones St., Raleigh.
Since 2001, North Carolina taxpayers have spent $14 billion on the war in Afghanistan. The meeting will shed light on the cost to the state’s communities in terms of jobs lost and other economic issues.
