If you enjoy this blog, you’ll probably like an upcoming “Crucial Conversation” luncheon with NC Policy Watch at the Levine Museum of the New South on Wednesday, Nov. 2.
NC Policy Watch is the leading progressive public policy think tank in the state. Its website, The Progressive Pulse, is a consistently reliable, knowledgeable source of information, analysis and commentary on the political goings-on in Raleigh. The group is set up as an independent project of the private, nonprofit anti-poverty organization NC Justice Center. The two organizations share the same guiding objective — to bring about social, political and economic justice in North Carolina.
Next week’s luncheon is called ”Divide and conquer? What a year of conservative control has meant for the North Carolina General Assembly.” A subtitle for the luncheon could be “Why do GOP legislative leaders want to repeal most of the good things accomplished in N.C. during the 20th Century?"
NC Policy Watch Director Chris Fitzsimon and Director of Research Rob Schofield will lead a discussion of the recent General Assembly session in order to, frankly, assess the damage and figure out what’s next. The talking begins at 12 Noon in Harris Hall at the Levine Museum of the New South uptown. Lunches will be available at 11:45 a.m., and it all costs $10. You can register here. Any questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
By the way, if you hate this blog, you can come to the event and cuss me out personally, as I will be in the audience.
