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.
