Raleigh, N.C. – The Center on Work, Poverty, and Opportunity at the UNC School of Law spends a lot of time advancing the liberal agenda and keeping its finances secret, a new article from the Civitas Institute says.
“The center started off in 2005 as a place for John Edwards to hang his hat between presidential runs,” according to Civitas Policy Analyst Clark Riemer. “Over the years it has traded on the UNC name and has used public resources to advocate for liberal or even far-left policies, while shunning conservative solutions.”
Moreover, the Center has tried to avoid telling taxpayers where its money comes from. “It claims to be either private or public, whichever allows it to keep its books hidden from the public,” Riemer said. “It’s time for the Center’s leaders to come clean about their agenda and their funding.”
