North Carolina has one of the largest veterans populations in the country. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss why it is important for veterans to organize and how we can go about it within the North Carolina Democratic Party. We want to hear your ideas for organizing and hope we can work together to organize veterans as a force in North Carolina politics.
February 4-18 is Wake Democratic Party precinct organizing. Please volunteer and participate in your local precinct and join us on February 13 to discuss organizing veterans.
