Four key priorities for Rachel are:
Education: Public education must be adequately supported and funded; including teachers’ pay, specials like music and P.E. and health education classes, including sexual health.
Economic Opportunity – This includes workforce development and retraining, economic incentives for companies and laws that encourage creativity and a good standard of living.
Healthcare -Expanding Medicaid to ensure that everyone has access to affordable insurance. Insurance companies should provide coverage for all women’s health needs.
Environment – We must ensure that North Carolinians have clean air and water through the use of alternative energy solutions.
