Who is WCDP?
The Wake County Democratic Party is a grassroots organization with the goal of electing Democrats who share our values. We fight to ensure Wake County residents and all North Carolinians have a fair shot at a good life, regardless of their background, where they came from, what they’re worth, or who they love.
Wake County Democrats believe EVERY person has inherent value, is worthy of the right to thrive, and deserves a voice in all levels of government. We empower people to organize in their local communities. We fight for voters’ rights to participate and choose their elected officials. We stand for accessible healthcare and bodily autonomy. We value high-quality public education. Wake County Democrats condemn and defy hate or discrimination against marginalized people in any form.
What We Do
- We help communities organize and build power to advocate for their needs.
- We help our neighbors get to the polls by providing accurate and timely information about elections and candidates.
