About Down Home Haywood County

Down Home North Carolina is an organization dedicated to building power for poor and working people. We are democratically led by the members of our local chapters, including Haywood County. The members of our Haywood Chapter decide what issues we work on, who we endorse, how we use resources, and where we organize.

Members of Down Home Haywood are hard at work in our communities knocking on doors, attending public meetings, holding demonstrations, raising money, and paying dues. And while many of our members can only afford to donate a few dollars a year, we work hard to put in the time and raise the resources we need to create stronger and more secure families, communities, and homes.  When working people unite, regardless of race, we win!
