About FLIP NC
FLIP NC is a Durham-based Indivisible group taking targeted, evidence-based action to elect progressives in North Carolina. In January 2017, a handful of friends met over beers to figure out how we could fight against gerrymandering and the failed policies of the North Carolina GOP.
We decided to focus on breaking the supermajority in the General Assembly (only 4 of the 120 House seats need to flip for Democrats to make this happen) in the critical 2018 election, so that we can restore the governor’s veto power, force Republicans to work across the aisle, and demand fair maps in 2020. We must return to a legislature that truly represents the people, where votes matter and there are no "safe seats."
Our data team has come up with the 28 most flippable districts in the NC House and NC Senate. We are actively working (via regular canvasses and phone banks) to flip NC House District 36 in Wake County. In 2017, over the course of 7 canvasses, more than 200 FLIP NC volunteers knocked 2,100 doors and had conversations with nearly 700 voters. At our February 2018 canvass alone, about 100 volunteers showed up – proof that North Carolinians are fired up and ready to flip!
FLIP NC is also mentoring other groups across the state – training them to run canvasses, pairing them with other grassroots organizations, and strategizing about how to best utilize their resources.
Since our founding in January 2017, FLIP NC has asked for volunteers’ time, not their money. Now, as an Independent Expenditure Committee, we have begun accepting donations, so that we can maximize our impact and organize our efforts beyond 2018.
Will you help us to FLIP NC in 2018?
