"But let me offer you my definition of social justice: I keep what I earn and you keep what you earn. Do you disagree? Well then tell me how much of what I earn belongs to you - and why?" ― Walter Williams
In our May 2023 issue, the Tar Heel takes a look at the flurry of legislative activity that is ongoing in the NC state house right now. We have two great interviews - with Orange County LP Chair Matthew Clements, and with GNRC's Andy Stevens. We have some great opinion pieces on currently pending legislation, a scathing rebuke of the Fayetteville city council by Mike Ross, and a brilliant defense of the second amendment philosophically by Justin Hinckley. Enjoy!

Members of your LPNC are doing big things around the state, and we capture it all right here. This month we share Strategic Communications Adviser Joshua Glawson Foudation for Econmic Education article.
The LPNC affiliate team is seeking regional liaisons to assist counties or regions in becoming official affiliates of the LPNC. Liaisons are responsible for following up with local organizers, as well as keeping open communication with those already active. They serve as coordinators between local groups and the LPNC; offering guidance, sharing information and resources, and updating contact information. They should be organized, with strong communication skills, and the willingness to attend virtual, bi-weekly meetings and work collectively to give updates, resolve issues, and find new opportunities.
Meetings are every other Monday at 8 PM.
Please e-mail Kimberly Acer at [email protected] if you are interested!
Each month, the Tar Heel sits down with the Chair of a county affiliate.

In May, we hear from Matthew Clements, Orange County Chair, in a broad interview about getting a new affiliate off the ground and what the party needs to keep growing.
