Riding the wave of the victory this last week has had us all feeling pretty good. Across North Carolina and the United States, a diverse wave of progressive and worker friendly candidates were elected to state and municipal offices. Thank you to everyone who went out and volunteered to help make this possible!
In Solidarity, Ashley Hawkins
