We know you’re out there. You were born and raised here.  Or you moved here and fell in love with this beautiful state and its warm, wonderful people. Or you grew up here and live elsewhere now, but are as much a part of this state as it is a part of you.

You are one of us.

We know you’re angry about what’s going on here. We know you’re out there protesting, organizing, registering voters, writing letters, signing petitions, attending fundraisers. 

We know you’re talking to your family and friends, neighbors and co-workers, your parents and partners and children about what’s happening here.  You tell them how our state is being governed in a way that hurts communities and families and businesses, robs people of their voices, kicks people when they’re down. 

You rage against a corrupt administration that sabotages women’s options.  That denies rights to people based on whom they love.  Forces hard-working teachers to struggle more for less pay.  Lets children go hungry.  Punishes people who haven’t been able to find work.  Makes it more and more difficult for many to survive, never mind get ahead.

We are so glad you’re here.

Thank you for being joined in this fight- these fights, these so many damned fights- with us.  Thank you for sharing the information that keeps us all better informed.  Thank you for taking up some struggles that at first glance don’t even seem to be yours, personally- because you are wise enough to know that these struggles are inextricably linked with yours. Thank you for connecting with each other, and with us, to help us all share the burden of outrage.  Thank you for showing up to be counted, for making signs, for even being arrested, to show your love for North Carolina.

It is such an honor to work alongside you in this fight for our state.  Thank you for being a part of OUR North Carolina.
