Anita Earls for Justice Campaign Seeks Outreach Director / by khaetlyn grindell

Organization Overview

Anita Earls is running for the North Carolina Supreme Court because she passionately believes an independent judiciary is crucial to the balance of powers necessary to maintain our democracy. An independent court means that the rules are the same for every North Carolinian, not just political insiders or those with great wealth and power. With a Republican dominated legislature, North Carolina is facing a critical time with extreme Republicans working to take away voting rights and an independent judiciary. Anita is ready to stand up to the powerful interests attempting to dismantle our democracy.
