Dear Movement family,
The political climate is rapidly changing—and we will remain on the front lines of resistance. We are quickly being ushered into a world of racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic and xenophobic federal policy, of brazen white supremacy, and of deep systemic regression. We must stand together and do all we can to continue supporting our communities in North Carolina, and across the country who will be most affected by the looming policy changes.
We cannot and will not stop! This work was never about one election. We need to build a movement that creates collective liberation for our people. We need your help to put 40 youth fellows on the ground on over 15 different campuses and 5 cities starting in January!
Ignite North Carolina is a youth-led organization dedicated to building the leadership and power of young people to create lasting and sustainable change. We are doubling down on our commitment to supporting youth of color and queer and trans youth as we build a new future. Ignite North Carolina is rooted in our mission of uplifting the voices and leadership of those most affected by injustice, and seeking to implement solutions for a more a more fair and just future.
Help us raise $10,000 as we mobilize and take back our future! This money will enable us to train and put 40 organizers across the state to respond and be proactive in ways most necessary and productive to the needs of our North Carolina community. We will continue to organize around higher education, black lives matter, and demand full equality for the lgbtq community.
As people rise up in unrest and dignified rage, help us ensure the capacity to respond fast and strategically to bigotry and hatred, and build visions of a more inclusive and equitable future.
Now is always the time!
