These are clear attempts by those in power to disenfranchise and suppress the vote of students, working families, and people of color, the very people who are becoming the new majority in the South. Ignite NC is committed to making sure that every person in North Carolina has the right to the ballot box. From the NC Vote Defenders Project, to the new Ignite NC fellows we will not rest until all voices are heard.
In a land that still holds the dark history of poll taxes and Jim Crow laws, we cannot accept this new attempt to legally marginalize and disenfranchise various populations of North Carolinians. That is why Ignite NC is mobilizing for HKonJ and calling on all young people to come march on February 8.
