Relieve your anxiety and worries about the November election! Join CCDP, democrats and allies for a morning designed to energize and uplift you for the work to make election history this November.
Mid-terms are traditionally low-turnout elections which makes Getting Out The Vote very important. CCDP’s Unity Breakfast kicks off our GOTV efforts and provides much needed funding for that work. With six unnecessary constitutional amendments on the ballot and four vitally important judicial candidates to elect there is a lot do.
Our speaker, NC Senator Jeff Jackson will inspire, inform and even make you smile. Senator Jeff Jackson, who represents the 37th District based in Mecklenburg County, gained national attention in 2014 when he spoke out forcefully on the injustices of the state budget presented at the 11th hour and pushed through by the GOP-majority. In February 2015, Sen. Jackson, being the only legislator to show up for work on a snow day, commenced to Tweet faux proceedings that read like a wish list for progressives. Issues such as implementing independent redistricting to end gerrymandering, making major investments in early childhood education programs and alternative energy technologies, advancing rural broadband, funding for mental health services and addiction programs all smoothly made their ways through committees and votes on the legislature's floor where they won with vote tallies of 1-0. Senator Jackson continues to be a vocal advocate and bill co-sponsor for these issues.
