COMMITTEE PRIORITY

Continue monitoring our local government officials for the Town of Chapel Hill, Town of Carrboro, Orange County, and Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools to remain informed of developing issues, and to let local decision makers know that we are watching.

COMMITTEE PRIORITY

Be active on a number of crucial and developing electoral issues, largely transpiring at the state level, that will have profound impacts on every individual’s rights and roles as voters. Our role will be to inform, educate, and engage voters and potential voters on: Voter ID, redistricting, 2020 Census, and voter registration.

COMMITTEE PRIORITY

Continue our participation in and contributions to the Orange County Community Remembrance Coalition (OCCRC), educating the public on the truth of racial terror lynching history and to ultimately obtain the Equal Justice Initiativ's monument for Manly McCauley, who was lynched here in 1898.
