On Wednesday at 9:30 A.M, North Carolina moms will be delivering colorful children’s handprints with powerful messages from MomsRising members to our State Legislators. This special delivery will be an important reminder to our legislators to give kids a hand.
Why handprints and why now? Final negotiations are underway right now in our Capitol and our leaders need one more reminder not to balance this budget on the backs of our children. Each handprint tile will bear a note with a brief message from a North Carolina resident urging legislators to give kids a hand and families a fair shake in their budget negotiations. That includes preserving programs like Smart Start and NC Health Choice, which ensure that young children get a healthy start in life.
Can you join us? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Help out with the handprint delivery! Meet at 9:30 this Wednesday at 16 West Jones Street in Raleigh.
Feel free to bring friends and kids! The more, the merrier!
