Ever since our founding, Progress North Carolina has been determined to represent all areas of our state, from the mountains to the shore. That's one reason why we have spent much of our time traveling to towns throughout NC, protesting cuts to public education (that's us in Lexington, at right, on a very windy day, meeting allies from a previous town hall rally); advocating for progressive issues; and supporting North Carolinians as they fight to preserve their rights (below, we joined Women Organizing for Wilmington and Planned Parenthood on April 2nd for a rally to protest the recent attack on women's healthcare by the New Hanover County Board of Commissioners).
Each stop we make not only puts us in touch with new allies, it provides us with an invaluable window on what North Carolinians really want for our state. Our conversations on-the-ground have materially changed the way we look at politics in North Carolina and shaped our priorities. We're convinced that bringing our presence to as many towns as possible will help us build an even stronger coalition of citizens interested in keeping North Carolina moving forward. If you'd like to know when Progress NC will be in your area, please join our email list and we'll keep you posted. In the meantime, we look forward to meeting you one day soon.
