NORTH CAROLINA NEEDS
FAIR & INDEPENDENT COURTS
MEET THE CANDIDATES
WHAT IS AT STAKE?
Judges make important decisions that affect North Carolinians every day. It is crucial for ALL North Carolinians that judges make fair and impartial decisions based on the law and facts alone – not political ideology, or status, or wealth, or special interest. The rule of law, an orderly and civil society, equal protection and due process, and the preservation of our constitutional rights are at stake.
WHY SUPPORT THESE CANDIDATES?
As citizens, we are also committed to improving peoples’ lives through personal service. Some examples of how these candidates are serving their communities include:
Engaging with students and schools, law enforcement, faith leaders, and other stakeholders in discussions about our justice system.
Building partnerships with law enforcement, educators and community leaders to consider ways to help keep young people in their classrooms and out of the courts.
Working to expand access to recovery courts to help people seek the treatment they need as we address the opioid epidemic.
Support programs that provide legal services for those who can’t afford them.
Deploying new technology to modernize how North Carolina’s courts function to more efficiently serve our communities.
