FIGHTING FOR DEMOCRACY,
ONE ACTION AT A TIME.
HAVE A FEW MINUTES?
In an effort to make North Carolina’s elections fair, reduce political divides, and stop racial gerrymandering (and the endless litigation that follows), Democracy North Carolina joins our coalition partners to support legislation that establishes an independent commission to create voting districts in a fair and open process. Join us in calling for our lawmakers to support independent redistricting reform ~ we’ll deliver the message.
Democracy NC’s Digital Democracy Defenders (or #3D) is our first-ever online crowdspeaking team that amplifies our most important messages on social media by helping us say it together. Sign up now for upcoming information on how to spread the Democracy NC word where you already are — on social media.
HAVE A COUPLE HOURS?
North Carolina — perhaps more than any other state in the Union — has been transformed by the new and growing tidal wave of political spending. In “Democracy for Sale,” actor Zach Galifianakis travels back to his home state to investigate how North Carolina has become a bellwether for how the money of a few has come to dominate our democracy.

HAVE A BIT LONGER?
Join us March 1 at the N.C. legislature for the Citizens Lobby Day to End Gerrymandering. This special Lobby Day brings together citizens from all across the state on Wednesday, March 1, beginning at 9 a.m. at the N.C. General Assembly. It’s organized by the NC Coalition for Lobbying & Government Reform, an unusually broad coalition that includes such groups as Democracy NC, Common Cause, State Employees’ Association, and John Locke Foundation ~ we all agree: we must end gerrymandering.
County Boards of Elections are meeting monthly to debate plans for where and when you can vote. Take action now ~ become a BOE Watchdog in your county.
