SAFE Coalition NC has been fighting to bring about municipal & legislative change in the areas of police accountability & Criminal Justice Reform. We use leadership development to empower community members impacted by the lack of accountability to serve on boards, develop policy positions, grassroots lobby elected officials, and not only build power but wield power.
Our goal is to build grassroots political power by increasing the number of registered voters in minority and low-wealth communities and increasing the number of these voters who participate in the election process. These voters and communities matter, and they are more than just a pawn in the political game. They wield great power, and the more who vote, the greater that power can become.
