|Health Access Coalition||
The Health Access Coalition is a project of the NC Justice Center. The Coalition supports the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and Medicaid expansion.
The Justice Center considers itself the "state’s preeminent voice for economic, social and political justice." Without a doubt it is one the largest if not the most liberal and radical activist groups in North Carolina. The Justice Center has served as an incubator for new groups and projects, including the MTL network Together NC and Blueprint NC, the umbrella group created to decide where Z. Smith Reynolds grant dollars would be spent.
The Justice Center was picked to be the "administrative home" for Blueprint NC in the mid 2000's by Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation because, according to a report titled the "State Strategies Fund," Blueprint had been created as a "strategic initiative" and its focus would be on "collaborative change." The report went on to explain that the "Justice Center, because of its scale and the close alignment of its interests and values with those of Blueprint" would serve as its administrative organization. In the beginning the Justice Center employed the Blueprint staff and received the grants made for Blueprint's work. In addition the Justice Center exercised oversight over Blueprint's budgets.
As a result of the Justice Center's assistance, Blueprint NC went on to gain notoriety with their strategy memo that directed their members to "eviscerate, mitigate, litigate, cogitate and agitate" the state's leadership in 2013.

In all, NC Families First spent over $2,670,000 targeting Republican members of the NC General Assembly in 2016, with almost half of it going towards opposing Supreme Court Justice Bob Edmunds.
The Center for Public Integrity reported that in 2016; “The liberal super PAC N.C. Families First spent over $1.7 million opposing Edmunds*. That PAC received funding from the Democratic Governors Association as well as three shadowy nonprofits — N.C. Citizens for Protecting Our Schools, Make N.C. First and Real Facts N.C. — that aren't required to disclose their donors.”
In 2016, Republican incumbent, Bob Edmunds, was running for re-election to the North Carolina Supreme Court and lost.

The N&O reported that Families First’s major donors were - Democratic Governors Association, North Carolina Citizens for Protecting Our Schools, which is funded by the National Education Association.
