Join Our Coalition

Issues like improving education, health care, and tax reform aren't addressed because campaign contributions dominate the political scene. Without your help, the soaring cost of elections will stop qualified leaders from seeking the most powerful decision-making positions in our state. Every North Carolinian should be able to run for office if s/he has community support. A system that places wealth above the rights of the citizens can be overcome with your help.
