What is Poder NC Action?
Poder NC Action is a Latinx-led and –serving, grassroots organization building the leadership and civic power of the Latinx community in North Carolina.
Why do we think this project is important?
Poder NC Action’s efforts to promote the active participation and engagement of the Latinx community in the democratic process are vital to improving voter participation and voter access in North Carolina. Poder NC is also building out its legislative work to more directly educate lawmakers on the impacts of election changes on the Latinx community.
As the Latinx community continues to grow in NC, organizations like Poder NC Action are key to ensuring inclusive elections and representative leadership in the state.
