The key to making change happen is taking action. Good ideas are not enough. We have Community Organizers on the ground to inspire and lead the actions that make ideas come to life. We also believe the people of NC get a better sense of their power when they see how incremental changes can add up over time. North Carolina is a state where important change often happens slowly, so we use our organizing resources to stay flexible, persistent, strategic, and committed for the long haul. In addition, we are committed to expanding voter participation in elections through both structural and personal change – for example, by making voting more accessible and educating the uninvolved about the value of participation. Our organizing is the key to making this type of change happen through personal example, one-on-one contact, and group actions.
Our organizers lead local civic coalitions in cities like Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Greenville and Fayetteville. We will be expanding our efforts in the Triad, Coastal and Western regions over the next four years.
In addition to these local coalitions, we have organized a dedicated grassroots volunteer base consisting of thousands of people statewide who take action in a variety of ways to support our issues.
