#OutToVote: Join ENC for 30 Days of Action!

As we gear up for the most important election of our lifetimes, Equality North Carolina is launching an #OutToVote "30 Days of Action" campaign to help plug you into our work.

While we may be stuck inside due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we all have a role to play in electing pro-equality legislators to represent our communities and fighting for the soul of this nation.

Each day, we'll ask our members and followers to engage in a call to action in the 30 days leading up to a very special weekend of action over National Coming Out Day, Oct. 11.

It's all one massive push to Early Voting, which runs from Oct. 15 - 31 in North Carolina.

Whether we're in the streets or in our homes, Equality North Carolina is #OutToVote and we hope you'll join us -- we can't win this fight without you!
