Women & Families

When Women Succeed, America Succeeds​: Kathy understands the importance of empowering women and girls, protecting access to health care, and fighting for a fair playing field for women. Kathy will never let the government come between a woman and her doctor and will fight to protect women’s reproductive rights. Kathy will always work to ensure equal economic opportunities for women and girls, including equal pay for equal work, affordable and quality child care, and access to paid family leave.

Keeping North Carolina Safe

  • Policing Reform: ​Kathy supports ​the passage of the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act which would ban chokeholds and no knock warrants, create a national police database, and establish national standards for policing. Kathy believes we should re-evaluate the process police officers use to perform vehicle stops for minor infractions and she supports annual evaluation and training for officers. Kathy also supports increased access to health care, including mental healthcare, to help police officers process the stress of their daily jobs.
  • Commonsense Gun Safety​: Kathy believes it is long past time to take the steps to end the gun violence that is ravaging our country. Kathy will support commonsense solutions to curb the epidemic of gun violence including comprehensive background checks, closing loopholes for gun show sales, red flag laws, banning bump stocks and high capacity magazines. She will also support funding for research to determine other steps that can be taken to keep our country safe from gun violence.
  • Access to Mental Health Resources​: Nearly two-thirds of all adults experience some type of mental illness in their lives, yet do not receive proper treatment. Kathy will fight for more access to quality mental healthcare so that North Carolinians have the care they need to keep themselves healthy, both physically and mentally.

Standing Strong for North Carolina’s Seniors

Protecting Medicare and Social Security​: Kathy is committed to ensuring Medicare and Social Security are protected for this generation and generations to come.

North Carolina seniors deserve the healthcare and retirement they have earned by working hard and playing by the rules.

Protecting our Environment

A Strong Economy and a Healthy Environment Go Hand-in-Hand​: Kathy will work to ensure North Carolina continues its leadership in renewable energy technology and will help incentivize companies to shift toward more sustainable and cleaner power supplies. North Carolina families must also have clean water to drink and clean air to breathe. We’ve seen first-hand what happens when companies break the rules — children and families get sick. The health, safety, and well-being of North Carolina families are Kathy’s top priorities.

Quality Education

  • Creating Opportunity​: Quality public education is the key to opportunity. Kathy will fight to ensure every child goes to a great public school regardless of their zip code. Kathy supports the creation of universal pre-k, an increase in Title I funding, and investments in school infrastructure. She will also fight to increase the availability of vocational and technical education for those who want to learn skills, and provide them job readiness that will lead them to a good career and a productive future.
  • Technical and Vocational Training to Land a Good Job​: Kathy will work to increase access to apprenticeship opportunities as well as vocational and technical education and training programs to shrink the skills gap and prepare our workforce for the 21st century economy. She will also support legislation to allow parents to use 529 college savings plans on skills and apprenticeship programs.
  • Affordable Higher Education​: Kathy believes a quality education provides the foundation for success in the 21st century economy. Every student should have access to an affordable post-secondary education, including community colleges, four year universities, or technical and vocational institutions. Kathy supports finding ways to make higher education more affordable for all families, including increasing Pell Grants, allowing Pell Grants to be used year round, improving student access to the most competitive loan rates, and allowing student borrowers to refinance their federal student loans when better rates are available. Kathy also supports fixing the existing Public Service Loan Forgiveness program to help public servants focus on serving their communities, rather than worrying about how they will back their loans.
  • HBCUs Make America Strong​: North Carolina has more Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) than all but one other state in the country and North Carolina’s Sixth District is home to three. HBCUs educate a significant number of first generation and low-income students, providing pathways to opportunity for communities in need, and they deserve robust support. Kathy was honored to sit on the Bennett College Re-engineering Committee to help the college chart a steady course for the future. In Congress, Kathy will join the Bipartisan HBCU Caucus to continue fighting for greater financial support for these institutions and expanding opportunities for the students they serve.

Jobs & the Economy

  • Good Paying Jobs for North Carolina​: Kathy understands the importance of job creation and economic development. Kathy has spent her career working to make her community a better place, including helping to spearhead key economic development projects to revitalize downtown Greensboro. As a new Member of Congress, she’ll ensure our taxpayer dollars go toward supporting jobs here at home, and close tax loopholes that reward corporations that ship jobs overseas.
  • Strong Small Businesses Make Strong Communities​: As a business person, Kathy knows that small businesses are the key to creating jobs and helping communities thrive. North Carolina must be an environment for small businesses to compete, grow, and thrive in a 21st century economy. To help recover from the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Kathy supports an additional COVID-19 relief package that will extend PPP loans to help small businesses through this difficult time. Kathy believes we must ensure these loans are made available to small, minority and female owned businesses that have been historically underbanked and may lack existing relationships with large banks. Kathy also believes we should encourage entrepreneurship and innovation so small businesses can continue creating the jobs of the future.

Affordable Healthcare & Lower Prescription Drug Prices

  • Fixing Our Healthcare System: Kathy will fight to protect people with pre-existing conditions and make health coverage more affordable. She will defend the Affordable Care Act from Republican cuts and support the creation of a public option. Kathy believes we should allow people to buy into Medicare at a younger age and build on the use of telemedicine to help with early detection and preventative care. Kathy also believes that North Carolina should join the 39 other states who have expanded Medicaid to extend health coverage to more than 500,000 North Carolinians who are currently uninsured. This will allow us to reduce reliance on expensive emergency room visits by increasing access to doctors and medical professionals.
  • Lower Prescription Drug Prices: When a chronic illness struck one of her daughters, Kathy experienced first-hand the frustration of fighting with big insurance companies to get the medication her daughter needed. She also learned the outrageous prices drug companies charge for prescription drugs – drugs that could be purchased for half the price in other countries. Kathy will fight to bring down the cost of prescription drugs. Kathy supports allowing Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices, examining the role of drug benefit managers in high drug prices, and looking for other ways to make prescription medication more affordable. She will look into shortages of much needed medications and go after price gougers.

On the 100th Anniversary of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment, We Can Make History Again in North Carolina

Greensboro, NC​ – Today, Kathy Manning​, Democratic nominee for North Carolina’s 6th Congressional District, released the following statement on the one hundredth anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, which prohibited voting discimination based on sex.

“One hundred years ago today, women made history by winning a decades-long fight to gain the right to vote. This monumental moment marked a turning point for voting rights but it was not without strife – many women of color continued to be excluded from the ballot box for nearly another half century. Today, we recognize the many women who came before us to fight for our right to vote, to advocate for equal rights, and to run for office. Their efforts shattered the proverbial glass ceiling.

“Our fight for voting rights is far from over. This year, we are witnessing record lines, malfunctioning voting machines, and an assault on the US Postal Service ahead of what will be the largest number of mail-in ballots cast for any U.S. election. We have the opportunity to make history again by voting in record numbers to make our voices heard and by electing women to office – from the school board to the office of the Vice President. Let’s make history together and honor those women who worked so hard to achieve the right to vote one hundred years ago.”

Out of the 333 people to represent North Carolina in the U.S. House, only six have been women. If elected, Kathy will be the first woman to ever represent North Carolina’s 6th Congressional District in the U.S. House.
