Protecting our Fundamental Rights

Every North Carolinian deserves to live in a state where they have the freedom to vote, to make their own health care decisions, and to live their lives free from discrimination. My faith teaches me that we’re all children of God, and I believe that hate and bigotry have no place in North Carolina. 

As your Attorney General, I have fought to protect all North Carolinians from discrimination, including fighting against voter suppression, restrictions on women’s reproductive freedoms, and attacks against LGBTQ+ North Carolinians.

As your Governor, I’ll continue to oppose those who would divide us and work for a more united North Carolina. We must stand up for ALL North Carolinians and defend our democracy. Legislative Republicans are damaging our democracy to cling to power. We must stand up for what’s right. In our democracy, the people should choose their representatives, not the other way around, and the state should be about protecting people’s right to vote, not restricting it.
