Cape Fear Indivisible is committed to helping North Carolinians in Districts 8 and 9 engage with their local, state, and federal representatives more effectively. Citizens are coming together from all sides – Republican, Democrat, and Independent – to create a home shaped by inclusive, effective, evidence-based policies.

An open invitation for all to attend their planning meeting on August 6 at 2pm at Revolutionary Coworking, 100 Hay St. Visit the event link for more info.
The August meeting will focus on a few of our upcoming events and fundraisers:
