DURHAM – Common Cause NC Democracy Fellows were on hand at NC Central University's Constitution Day program to help students register to vote and to launch the Black Votes Matter campaign on the campus.

"What better way to mark a celebration of our constitutional rights than to help students prepare to exercise those rights?" said Alyssa Canty, campus outreach coordinator with Common Cause North Carolina. "It's great to see students take seriously their opportunity to be heard in our democracy."

Selected among the student body at HBCU campuses across North Carolina, CCNC Democracy Fellows are dedicated to helping their fellow students meaningfully participate in the democratic process.
