Kelsey is also the cofounder of the Facing Project, which seeks to connect people through stories to strengthen community.
Kelsey writes of Eric:
“Eric Henry’s T-shirt business and North Carolina community were turned upside down by NAFTA. Ever since, he’s focused on the triple bottom line: people, planet, and profit. Eric is a champion for his community, cooperatives, chickens, electric cars, local economies, farmers, and now he’s seeking to represent all of these interests in the North Carolina House of Representatives.”
