Given the current threats the world is facing by terrorists groups, national security is of the utmost concern to Congresswoman Adams. Not only are we facing global threats, but the threats of random attacks on American soil are becoming more and more real. It is the Congresswoman's top priority to ensure the continued safety of her own constituency and all Americans.
Another aspect of national security is cybersecurity. With large banking centers and one of the nation’s largest energy companies located in Charlotte, investing in digital security is absolutely necessary to the 12th District.
The Administration recently offered a $25 million grant to Historically Black Colleges and Universities, including North Carolina A&T, to train cyber security experts right here at home.
