Democracy Summer opening act

Every summer Democracy North Carolina has talented young undergraduate student interns join the team to do nonpartisan organizing in regions all across the state. They will be documenting their experiences through weekly blogging. In their first week they met elected officials, attended meetings, spoke at events, and helped push Mega Moral Monday all over the region. Meet my team:

Hi! I’m Cassandra Perkins, “Cassy.” I’m a junior at UNC-Chapel Hill studying Political Science and Journalism. Having grown up in Bethesda, MD, working in Eastern NC will be a whole new adventure for me. I’m excited to learn about the current issues facing NC and work with the community to create change!

Hi! I’m Martina Evans. I am a senior at UNC-Chapel Hill studying Global Studies and Medical Anthropology. I was born in Greenville which is why I am filled with excitement about what the summer holds. I’m happy to be able to go back to the community I grew up in and make a change.

Keep an eye on the Tales From The Frontlines section of the Democracy NC blog throughout the summer for updates from all the teams across the state. And of course I'll be crossposting some of the content on Blue NC as well.
