Cheri Heads to CVCC to Learn About Job Training Efforts

This week, Cheri visited Catawba Valley Community College (CVCC) to learn about its program for preparing students who are going into manufacturing and engineering careers. In the Senate, she will work to support community colleges across North Carolina to ensure all North Carolinians have access to programs like the one at CVCC that brings good-paying jobs and boosts local economies.

WATCH: Sen. Klobuchar Says Electing Cheri Could Be the Difference Between Codifying Roe and a National Ban on Reproductive Freedom

During an interview with MSNBC on Sunday, U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar said that flipping North Carolina’s seat could allow the Senate to finally codify Roe v. Wade. Senator Klobuchar’s remarks came after Mitch McConnell suggested that Senate Republicans might pursue a national ban on abortion if SCOTUS follows through with overruling Roe. Cheri understands that abortion is a constitutional right and knows exactly what’s at stake for people across the country, especially in states with Republican legislatures like North Carolina.

As a judge and Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court, Cheri spent her career of public service upholding the Constitution and protecting our fundamental rights. In the Senate, Cheri will do the same thing and will fight tirelessly to protect our reproductive freedoms.
