Giving to charity is crucial for economic prosperity, happiness, and the success of our people. But for too long, only the upper class has been incentivized to give to charitable organizations. With the Universal Charitable Giving Act we help support the great work of the faith-based and charitable groups working hard to make a difference in our community.
Adopting a child is one of the most selfless, generous acts a family can pursue. Every year, loving families in America welcome thousands of children into their homes and into their lives to provide them with endearment and opportunity. Families like the Hoppers show the positive impact adoption can make in our community, our country and our world, and highlight the need to remove barriers and encourage adoptions through our policies.
I have always valued the importance of HBCUs. With more than 100 HBCUs across the nation – and eleven here in North Carolina, they are an integral part of our higher education system. On a more personal note, my wife, Kelly, is a graduate of Winston-Salem State University and has found success as a nurse practitioner, which she attributes in part to the strong education she received. I believe it is as important as ever to have Republicans engage with HBCUs.
Congress has passed laws that provide resources to confront this epidemic, but as we learned in our Opioid Crisis Tour throughout North Carolina, more action is clearly needed.
