TO THE EDITOR:
Many progressive members of the UNC community are appalled and despairing at the continued backward policies of the N.C. legislature and the new, more profound rightward turn of the U.S. federal government.
There are many more appropriate responses available than despair. In N.C., progressive organizations and individuals have banned together in the HKonJ coalition led by Rev. William Barber and the N.C. NAACP. Despite enormous odds, we have seen some success. We elected a governor who supports reproductive rights and expansion of Medicaid.
Come join us on Saturday, Feb. 11 in Raleigh. In particular, if you are a health care worker or student, grab your white coat and join me as we show our concern about the assault on access to health care and reproductive health.
