Public Pension Defense Toolkit

ncpers-nppc-public-pension-defense-toolkitPublic pensions remain one of the most efficient forms of fiscal policy for state and local governments; however, decades of corporate greed and misguided policy decisions have left public pensions vulnerable to attack from politicians, the media, and the public.  In 2010, NCPERS created the Public Pension Toolkit; a template for what local or regional media outreach efforts built to support retirement security for all public employees should contain. In the 8 years since we first created the toolkit, the issues and our universal messages have evolved. This updated toolkit was created in partnership with the National Public Pension Coalition (NPPC).

This toolkit features tip sheets for building relationships with the press, legislative action checklists, case studies, suggestions for developing messaging, and more. Please contact with any questions.
