Campaign '68

Many see similarities between the 2016 presidential election campaign and one almost half a century earlier. The 1968 presidential campaign was one of the most dramatic and significant contests for the White House in the 20th century. It was a close, bitterly-fought campaign in a raucous, bloody year. Ultimately, the Democratic Party lost its decades-long grip on national power, making way for the rise of Republican conservatism that profoundly reshaped American public policy for the next 40 years.

From: Carol H., Davidson, NC

For seven years I have served on the board of the one of the only sliding-fee day cares in our county. As the economy got worse, more day cares closed, but the need for day cares rose as people's hours changed and women with young children returned to the workforce earlier than intended. Child care in Mecklenburg County averages $900 per month, putting it out of reach of even teachers. And the funds for subsidized child care shrank as demand grew.
