The North Carolina Council of Churches believes that participating in our democracy is one critical component of our call to be the hands and feet of Jesus in this world. We also believe that local and state elections provide significant opportunities to impact policy that affects our neighbors, our children, our elderly, our infirmed, our imprisoned, our impoverished, and all in our community who live and work and have their very being under the heavy weight of personal and institutional racism. And we believe that all of these are indeed ours, that we belong to each other, and that voting with the interest of others in mind is a spiritual practice, a resistance to the trappings of this world.
We want to make sure that voters across NC are prepared to participate in the Primary Elections.
