Screening of the film February One

Screening of the award-winning film, February One, followed by a panel discussion on “Student Activism, Then and Now”.

Based largely on first-hand accounts and rare archival footage, February One documents one volatile winter in Greensboro that not only challenged public accommodation customs and laws in North Carolina but served as a blueprint for the wave of non-violent civil rights protests that swept across the South and the nation throughout the 1960s.

This event is co-sponsored by the Chapel Hill/Carrboro NAACP, The Sonja Haynes Stone Center, Carolina Black Caucus, Democratic Women Of Orange County, and Hillsborough Progressives Take Action.

General Meeting + Immigration Discussion

Please join us for our January general meeting. Carolina Peace Center founder and PDOC member Faisal Khan will start off our 2019 year with a discussion on immigration issues.

We’ll also be setting our goals for the coming year, including:

  • Determining legislative priorities and planning a chapter meeting with Rep. David Price
  • Increasing Progressive leadership at the precinct, county, district and state levels of the OC Democratic Party
  • Expanding PDOC leadership at the state Progressive Caucus
  • Producing and distributing easy policy materials to educate voters, candidates and decision-makers

Please bring your ideas and be ready to make a commitment to action!

Holiday Potluck and Blue Wave Celebration!

 

Happy holidays Progressives!
We bear tidings of joy – the Progressive Caucus of the NC Democratic Party lives! Thanks to all our members who came out to the meeting, and those who took the time to sign proxies.  PDOC showed up in great numbers and started some important discussions and took on new leadership roles. Congratulations to Vicki Boyer, newly elected 3rd Vice President (messaging and PR), Felix Peng elected to the Judicial Board, and Kim Piracci (by acclamation!) is now Fundraising Chair.

We are now turning our sights to 2019! There is much work to be done at the state level and nationally and we have to think strategically about how to get organized and put our progressive policy solutions front and center.  We will begin that discussion at our last General Body meeting of the year and would love your input and participation. Join us for holiday food and cheer with a side of planning and plotting!
