Blueprint NC is a progressive ecosystem of nearly 60 formal partner organizations and an expanding web of network allies committed to building independent power for an anti-racist, inclusive democracy. We believe that inclusive democracy requires open, reflective, and responsive governing institutions.
We know that structural racism and economic inequalities shrink and weaken democratic processes through laws, practices, and culture that have for too long excluded many – Black people, people of color, poor and working class people, women, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities – from access and representation.
We sustain and grow an expanding progressive infrastructure capable of shifting policy, hearts, and minds. We know that we cannot have an inclusive democracy without clean air and water, access to affordable housing, equitable public education, safe communities, health care because these are necessary pre-conditions of full participation in a democracy that can actually work for all of us.
