As most of you know by now, we’re moving the ERI headquarters from Fresno to Charlotte, North Carolina in a few weeks! I’m speaking in Virginia this week and getting back just in time to help pack the truck and we’ll caravan to Charlotte for five days!
One of the most frequent questions I get these days is: “Why did you pick Charlotte?” Once I knew that it was time to move, I asked my wife Hannah to start researching good airport cities with good cost of living. After ruling out a few options for various reasons, Charlotte became the obvious choice.
It’s ideally located on the east coast, within driving distance of Operations Coordinator Jacob Nels, who lives north of Atlanta, and also a cheap flight away from D.C. where we speak often. The Charlotte airport has direct flights to lots of the places we go.
There are lots of wonderful Christian organizations in the Charlotte area, but no pro-life organizations that are similar to us. We have lots of outreach to do on the college campuses in NC!
We’re going to be so much more efficient by being in Charlotte, and we can’t wait to get there and set up our new office! But as you can imagine, moving is a fairly expensive process. I’m wondering if you’d be willing to help us. All told the move will cost us around $7,412 in transportation costs, including the moving truck.
If you’d like to help, click the button below, and then click on the “Donate Now” button on the webpage it opens. In the third step of the process, you’ll be asked where you’d like to designate your gift. The last option on the dropdown menu is “The ERI Move.” Select that and set up your gift.
Thanks so much! We have huge things coming up, and I’m ready to get this move behind us so we can get back to spending all of our time training pro-life advocates to think clearly, reason honestly, and argue persuasively.
