“I HAVE COME TO THIS PLACE FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.’” – ESTHER 4:14

Democracy North Carolina is a resource for faith communities seeking to educate and engage their members in civic life. We provide a wealth of resources to help congregations with voter registration drives, voter education efforts, get out the vote campaigns, issue education, and more. Read more about and attend local events to aid the faith community in educating and engaging voters here.

We recruit Faith Ambassadors – points of contact in faith communities statewide – to help join a statewide network of thousands to lead this charge. This coordinated effort is nonpartisan, unaffiliated with any political party or candidate, and supported by top leaders of the state’s major faith denominations as well as the North Carolina Council of Churches.
