About North Carolina Friends and Family

Why NC Friends & Family Was Created

As other states across the country have demonstrated, some elected officials have become insensitive to the plight of working men and women, particularly those who have been injured in the workplace. These citizens seem powerless when it comes to having any influence with the legislators who represent them, either because they do not have the financial ability to participate in the election process, or because they have never been educated about the process. Many of them are not even registered to vote. The main purpose of Friends and Family is to give them an opportunity to be heard.
