New Caucuses

Do you want to have a larger voice when it comes to your community?  Do you feel your interests are underrepresented in the Democratic Party?  Join a Caucus!  This Summer let’s build momentum towards November!

Currently Craven County has one active caucus:  Democratic Women of Craven County.

There are, however three caucuses that are looking for new members:

  • Veterans and Military Families

DiRico Baker is spearheading the effort to organize a caucus for Veterans and Military Families.

Our service to our country never ends. We should be involved with our political process to better serve our communities. Hence why I believe the Democratic party is the best vehicle to facilitate that service.
And so, I’m starting the Veterans and Military Family’s caucus in order to represent and facilitate meeting the needs of our veterans, their families, and our community’s. So, I would like your support. If you’d like to join or help out in any way, please reach out to me.

  • LGBTQ

Jodie Lones is looking for members of the LGBTQ community AND allies to work with her to fight for all North Carolinians.  You can reach her at jodielones -at- gmail -dot- com

  • Young Democrats

Samuel Johnson already has organized Young Democrats in our sister counties, but is looking to reach out to Craven County.

Good Evening Eastern North Carolina Democrats!

My name is Samuel Johnson, and I am your Eastern Regional Director for the Young Democrats of North Carolina. I am the current sitting President of the Young Democrats of Onslow County, and I am excited to be able to reach out to every single one of you tonight. Little introduction from me, I was born and raised in Richlands, North Carolina.

I won’t take up too much of your time tonight, I just wanted to send out an email letting everyone know that YDNC is in expansion mode, and we are fired up and ready to go for 2020. Young Democrats are classified as any Democrat between the ages of 18 and not achieving the age of 37. County Chapters may consist of 5 or more Active Members, and we can also do Multi-County Chapters with your neighboring counties if you are not able to get 5 Members.

We also have options for At-Large membership with YDNC.

Please let me know if you have any Young Democrats in your county, and I will be more than glad to reach out to them, or you can have them reach out to me. I can setup a Zoom call if needed as well with any further questions. YDNC Executive Board has committed to growing to 60% of NC Counties with an Active Charter or At-Large Member. We have multiple caucuses within the organization; African-American Caucus, Labor Caucus, LGBTQ+ Caucus, Rural Caucus, and Women’s Caucus. Young Voters are the future of America, and we need to make sure they have the support they need.

I look forward to working with each and everyone of you to start or restart a Young Democrat chapter within your County Party. I know we can Turn NC Blue, and grow not only YDNC, we can grow your County Party. North Carolina Democrats are extraordinary folks and we have the drive and the will to get the job done. Please reach out to me, I am only a phone call, text message, or email away.
