“Amidst concerns about the coronavirus, we do not feel comfortable asking our supporters - many of whom suffer from illnesses, care for vulnerable loved ones, or lack affordable health care access - to attend a group gathering,” said Piedmont Rising Executive Director Casey Wilkinson. “We are deeply sorry for the inconvenience, but our first priority is the health and safety of North Carolina families.”

Piedmont Rising will reschedule the meeting at a future date.
