Medicaid expansion is about to become a reality in North Carolina, confederate monuments are being moved from courthouse lawns, and the Governor just created the Office of Violence Prevention, which will shore up our work on gun violence prevention. And yet, just when we thought we had fair voting districts, the North Carolina Supreme Court has indicated its willingness to reconsider cases it had already settled. So it goes. There is always work to do as we continue to work with God to create the world God wants us to have.
We are also grateful to work with you as we refract the policy issues of our day through the lens of faith. Individual donors are more important than ever as funding streams continue to shift. I believe individual contributors like you offer a unique connection to the Council. Unlike denominational and congregational support, which we greatly appreciate, your dollars represent the passion of a specific individual, or individuals when the whole family is invested. This allows us to reciprocate your gift by engaging your passions in the place where you live and move and have your being. We are always eager to hear from you.
In addition to those named above, some other places where the Council is currently engaged across North Carolina include work on climate justice and resilience, cash bail reform, death penalty abolition, farmworker advocacy, and equipping congregations with mental health, healthy aging, and healthy lifestyle resources. All this and more is available on our website. You can read more about how to get involved in our climate and health here.
Easter Blessings upon you as we welcome the annual rebirth of God’s creation and celebrate the gift of life found within it.
