I work for SELC because I am able to make a big impact.Senior Attorney Kym Meyer
Cases in point: She represents the North Carolina NAACP in its challenge to two state constitutional amendments regarding photo ID voting requirements and income tax rates. “Our constitution gives voice to everything we hold dear as a state—a free democracy, fair elections, and a respect for all North Carolina citizens—not just those who hold a political majority,” she said. “The challenge to these two constitutional amendments has required grit, determination, and diligence, and been some of the work I am most proud of. I’m honored to play a role in this important fight.”
Kym is originally from York, England. In the South, one of her most unique and special places is Cumberland Island, Ga. She loves its “beautiful mix of history, lush forests and stunning beaches – not to mention so much native wildlife.”
