In their latest newsletter, Down Home North Carolina announced victories of their endorsed candidates in rural counties, signaling the emergence of a multiracial, working-class movement in North Carolina.
Writing for Down Home, Dreama Caldwell said,
“The political landscape of rural North Carolina is changing and progressing with every election cycle. I spent years, as an organizer and a candidate, trying to change Alamance County. Working at and now leading Down Home has made me realize that change will come as part of the big statewide movement we are building. When we build an intentionally multiracial movement of working people our wins in one county are amplified and can be felt everywhere across the state. Big, broad, and statewide: This is how working people win.”
