Our Revolution Asheville is focusing on reorganizing the NC Democratic Party with new progressive energy, starting with the precinct level elections taking place February 25 in Buncombe County. The February 18 chapter meeting is to educate citizens about where their precinct is and how to participate in their precinct meetings. This is the first step toward choosing new leadership locally and across the state, leaders dedicated to representing the will of the people.
