Larsene Taylor, UE local 150, NC Public Service Workers Union ” There are increasing attacks on front-line city and state workers and the services we provide. We need a “Workers Bill of Rights” made into law to guarantee basic human rights. Divided we beg for a living wage, safe working environment, and a seat at the table…united we bargain! “

–  Larsene Taylor, State Mental Health Worker, DHHS; Cherry Hospital, Goldsboro NC; Vice President, UE local 150, NC Public Service Workers Union 

Kristen Beller, teacher

“I fight for public schools because I believe they are the great equalizer in our society. Everyone gets the opportunity to make themselves stronger and smarter. An educated community has a greater quality of life. I fight for my students’ right to a quality public education because if I don’t, who will?”

–  Kristin Beller, Teacher, Millbrook Elementary
