In North Carolina, the choice is clear. Kay Hagan supports a woman’s right to make her own decisions about abortion, birth control, and health care, and voted against defunding Planned Parenthood. She supports raising the minimum wage, strengthening equal pay laws, making college affordable and keeping Historically Black Colleges & Universities open. In her time in office, she has taken action to end violence against women, advance the movement for marriage equality, and progress health care reform. Her opponent, the ultra-conservative North Carolina Speaker of the House, has pushed an anti-woman and anti-social justice agenda through the state legislature and slashed the social safety net.

But the race is close, and Hagan is a major right-wing target. The oil-rich billionaire Koch brothers have devoted millions to defeating her. Every voice and every vote in this race counts to keep women’s rights, civil rights, LGBT rights, and what’s right for students off the chopping block in this election. So much is at stake. The time to speak up is now!

You can vote for Kay Hagan on Election Day, November 4. Learn more about voting laws in North Carolina here. Learn more about Kay Hagan here.
