Our passion is to elect progressive candidates to the North Carolina General Assembly. Work for Democracy (WFD) made a difference in the 2018 and 2020 elections, and with your help we hope to have even more success in 2022. We can’t afford to wait. The time for action is now.
Who We Are
WFD 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. Our focus has been to elect outstanding Democratic candidates to the NC legislature.
What We Do
We concentrate on supporting candidates in close races where we believe our efforts can help produce victory at the polls. We use a dual strategy: making early, substantial financial contributions to candidates and deploying boots-on-the-ground canvassing during campaign season.
In 2020, WFD supported eleven candidates. Despite the headwinds of the COVID-19 pandemic and GOP gerrymandering, four of our candidates were elected.
Two candidates, Senator Michael Garrett and Representative Ashton Clemmons were re-elected from Guilford County. In addition, Ricky Hurtado of Alamance County and Brian Farkas of Pitt County were elected to the NC House of Representatives, both for the first time.
