We will be joined by Sen. Kandie Smith to discuss voting rights bills within the NCGA, as well as legislation and issues pertaining to education, the environment, and other region-specifc issues. The meeting will also be a chance for Lucas to introduce himself to the region formally, and share his plan for how we all will work together in the future. Participants can share what work they are doing within their community and how we all can collaborate to tackle the issues we are seeing around us.

What is the Democracy Coalition? Our Local Coalition brings together organizational representatives and individuals who agree to work together to change and use the political system so it equips people to take action, promotes grassroots leadership, and serves “the good of the whole.” We want an elections process that is accessible, fair, and secure. And we want a government “of, by, and for the people,” that fosters equity, solidarity, and justice.
