Unity and Healing Rally in Mebane

Due to the urgency of the proposed budget cuts to the Alamance County Board of Elections we couldn’t get this posted yesterday. By all accounts the rally was a great experience and important step for healing in our County. Thank you to: 7 Directions of Service, MMIW NC, NCDP Native American Caucus.Eastern Woodland Lacross, Red Hark’s American Indian Educational & Cultural Awareness, inc., and the Alamance NAACP for organizing and your efforts at healing and building unity.

Council of State

The Council of State comprises North Carolina’s executive branch of government. Under the North Carolina Constitution, it is composed of ten elected officers: the governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, state auditor, treasurer, superintendent of public instruction, attorney general, and commissioners of agriculture, labor, and insurance.

Jen Mangrum – NC Superintendent of Public Instruction

Jen knows public education is the best choice for everyone, because public education is public empowerment!

Jen knows that robust, equitable investment in our public education system — as well as a genuine, state-wide commitment to the empowerment of ALL students, educators, and school personnel — is absolutely necessary to ensure shared social progress in North Carolina. A free, high-quality public education is every child’s constitutional right, but not only that; free, high-quality public education is a necessary investment in democracy and our collective future. Public education is a universal solution to widespread disinformation, disengagement, and division.
