We work to elect those whose ideas, policies and mission are to create good jobs and an economy that works for everyone, to provide a quality education from pre-k through college, to protect the civil rights of all people, and to build strong communities across our state where people have access to affordable healthcare and clean air and drinking water. Simply put - we believe in equality, opportunity, and prosperity for all.

Emma, who had the opportunity to be in Charlotte on Tuesday for the Hillary Clinton rally with President Barack Obama, is heading up the Coordinated Campaign in our area. Come hear her enthusiasm:Saturday, July 9, 20169:00am - 10: 15amThe Village Diner600 West King Street, HillsboroughEmma is no stranger to Orange County; she graduated from East Chapel Hill High, went to UNC-Chapel Hill for undergrad. Her next venture was to Scotland, where she did her graduate work at St. Andrews. Seeing from abroad what was happening to her beloved state, she returned home to do her part.In order for Democrats to take back the General Assembly, keep the Council of State, return to the governor's mansion, and maintain the White House, we must strategize and mobilize. We hope to see you Saturday, as we continue to work towards victory.
