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.

We are an invitation to movement, and a scaffold for the builders of a North Carolina in right relationship with its people.

New BlueprintNC.org Coming Soon

For more than a decade our partnership has been working to build independent power in North Carolina collecting more than 600,000 voter registration applications, mobilizing millions of voters to cast a ballot, and building a base of leaders across the state. In 2021, partners made over 500,000 (538,000 to be exact) phone calls and door knocks to North Carolinians leading up to municipal elections this fall, over 120,000 non-partisan voter guides were distributed, we hosted our first Spanish language 3-day civic engagement training with over 20 organizations, and 50 progressive non-profit organizations have received critical capacity-building support.

We are thrilled to have a new website in the works for launch in early 2022, that will enhance our ability to amplify the work of our partners, provide updates in real-time, and reflect the breadth of our statewide work.
