About Democracy North Carolina

Democracy North Carolina is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that promotes a government truly of the people, for the people and by the people of NC. We protect and educate the public on voting and constituent rights, advocate for legislation to eliminate barriers to running for office and work to reduce the corrosive effect of big money in politics. A belief in equality plus a respect for the civil rights of all citizens underpins our work.

  1. Hey you Greenville guys! I am next door in Martin County and am a part of a Pitt Co group organizing there for health care reform. We are having a forum sponsored by NC Justice on July 23 in Greenville. Would you all like to attend and give us your 2cents worth? Maybe we could even give you a minute to speak on voter owned elections.
