North Carolina Workers Relief Fund

In the disastrous wake of Hurricane Florence, the labor movement, as always, is leading relief efforts in communities throughout North Carolina. First Responders, public employees, and working people across the state are on the front lines evacuating people to safety, tending to the injured, restoring power, and rebuilding. The North Carolina State AFL-CIO and national AFL-CIO are also stepping up to coordinate disaster relief efforts with unions on the local and national levels to assist with the long task of helping North Carolina recover and rebuild.

Toward that end, the NC State AFL-CIO has launched the North Carolina Workers Relief Fund. They are currently surveying union members in affected areas to determine the best way to utilize funds and help union families and their communities.

While we cannot make anyone whole, donating to the North Carolina Workers Relief Fund sends a message of solidarity and the knowledge that working people affected by this disaster are supported by Brothers and Sisters across the nation.
