About Us

A group of diverse hands united in support

Work For Democracy is a progressive grassroots movement organized as a political action committee under North Carolina law. We formed in 2016 in response to threats to our democracy. We help get candidates elected to the North Carolina General Assembly by canvassing door-to-door and fundraising. Through careful research we identify, select and support candidates in close races where we believe our efforts can have a critical effect. WFD made a difference in the 2018 elections, and with your help we hope to have even more success in 2020. 

Here are some testimonials of candidates who won seats as a result of our support:

I'm deeply honored and grateful to have earned their support in the 2018 general election and have seen their determination to better our government first-hand. The involvement of Work for Democracy in my campaign was essential to our election victory. WFD is a model for truly effective and meaningful civic engagement in the electoral



Tammi Thurm

Greensboro City Council, District 5

“Work for Democracy made the difference in my campaign for Greensboro City Council in 2017. Their members took to the streets to knock on doors and greet voters at polling places during early voting. They made crucial financial donations when our campaign needed them the most. WFD is more than a name. It is an exceptional force for good government in Guilford County.”
