“Safe Site” Provides Fun, Secure Access To Early Voting

“Safe Site” Provides Fun, Secure Access To Early Voting

Power, Protection and Encouragement!  As early voting winds down in Wayne County, a few community groups teamed together to ensure everyone has access to the polls.  Friday afternoon, the One-Stop Early Voting site at Bear Creek Missionary Baptist Association was one of approximately 600 “Safe Sites” in North Carolina.  The effort provided a fun atmosphere for the voters that came by, with free chicken dinners and a DJ pumping music while voters participate in the democratic process.  The non-partisan effort was put together by the Resilience Hub of Goldsboro, a collaboration of the Down East Coal Ash Coalition, NC Climate Justice Collective, and Black Workers for Justice.
