Town Hall Series: Let your voice be heard!

As the new State Senator, especially one appointed by a committee, I feel an obligation to proactively engage my new constituents and give them the opportunity to voice their concerns. One of my favorite quotes is by Alastair Farrugia, "Freedom is when the people can speak;  democracy is when the government listens." I take that to heart and I hope these Town Hall meetings can be a positive conversation about how to move our state forward. We face a lot of challenges and I also want the opportunity to present my progressive agenda for the upcoming session. I understand the political realities of the General Assembly, but it's critical that we begin to articulate a Democratic agenda and fight back against the intolerant and harmful policies the legislature has given us. 
 
Here are the dates, times and locations of the Town Hall events:

Autumn Harvest Ayurvedic Benefit Dinner

Autumn Harvest Ayurvedic Benefit Dinner


Sunday, October 13 from 6-8pm

At Vimala's Curryblossom Cafe

sliding scale $5-50

to benefit the International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal

RSVP to [email protected]


In 1984 Union Carbide, now owned by Dow Chemical Company, was responsible for the largest environmental disaster in human history exposing well over 500,000 people to the toxic methyl isocyanate gas, killing more than 15,000 immediately and injuring countless thousands—even now at least one person dies per day in Bhopal from injuries sustained that night.


Union Carbide consistently claimed that as an American company, Indian law should not apply to them, but operating in India, they could not be subject to American Law. Methyl isocyanate is a highly toxic compound used in the production of chemical pesticides and was discovered in North Carolina in 1892 by the venerated Morehead and Kenan (of UNC Planetarium and Stadium fame).


Please come out to support the courageous initiatives for restorative justice for the survivors of the Bhopal disaster that was birthed

here in North Carolina
