Purple. Battleground. Whatever you call it: All eyes are on North Carolina this election season.

With 80 of our 100 counties in North Carolina being rural… how we vote matters.

That’s why Down Home NC, Equality NC, Mijente, Poder NC, Advance NC, and have teamed up for a BIG ONLINE CONCERT to Get Out The Vote this election!  We don’t just want our small town and rural voters to turn out, we want to change the state.

According to TargetSmart data, there are nearly 1.5 million rural voters under the age of 45 in North Carolina. And according to the state board of elections there are 1.5 million Black voters and 220,000 Latinx voters in our state. At Down Home, we know that these voters– working class and poor folks from rural communities and communities of color– have the same interests at heart, no matter how they try to divide us.

It was for this reason that we are collaborating with such a diverse group of organizations under the banner Young, old, gay, straight, white, Black, and Brown, our members are working together, we are unleashing the power of our electorate, and we are going to absolutely be ready for November. 

To celebrate this project and the diversity of our members that lead our work, we are hosting a HUGE PARTY and CONCERT online! If you have been looking for a way to get your friends excited about voting in this critical election— this is what you’ve been looking for. So RSVP to the event and share it around with everyone you know.

This is what our North Carolina looks like. And we are going to vote.
