Latin American Festival Carrboro

Margaret and I were at the Latin American Festival on Weaver St. in Carrboro. (It ends at 7PM tonight 8/28). The crowd was relatively small. Lots of great music and dance and food. (We had the Salvadoran dish of pupusas.) El Centro Hispano was registering voters and folks from Deborah Ross for Senate were passing out stickers and collecting addresses for her campaign.

HB2

So I was in Ohio and of course HB2 came up. Back in NC the Sierra Club has just released a statement about HB2:

To: North Carolina Sierra Club Chapter Leaders
As you know, HB2 has been the leading news story in North Carolina for several weeks.  This bill goes against the diversity, equity and inclusion principles of the Sierra Club.  Our Chapter DEI Committee and Steering Committee have unanimously voted to take a position opposing HB2 as a way to affirm our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.  Here is our statement:
"The Sierra Club is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion.  North Carolina House Bill 2 clearly seeks to undermine these principles through discriminatory policies, including but not limited to denying equality for LGBT individuals; denying the right of individuals to pursue age, sex and racial discrimination cases in state courts; and reiterating legislative opposition to the ability of local governments to raise the minimum wage so as to help achieve economic equity.  The North Carolina Chapter of the Sierra Club strongly opposes this bill and calls for its repeal."

I just received an invite to complete this transportation survery. Hope everyone does the same.

Write in candidate for School Board

 I attended the meet and greet forum for school board candidates at the library tonight. Two arrived late. Also Al Baldwin spoke. He is a retired school teacher (we both worked at Chapel Hill High School and he also worked at East CHHS). He announced he is running as a write in candidate because he is very disturbed about what is happening to teachers in the district. He noted that many are afraid to speak up about concerns that they have about education at their schools and in the district.  I look forward to hearing more from him.
