WINSTON-SALEM – Common Cause NC Democracy Fellows launched our Black Votes Matter campaign on the campus of Winston-Salem State University, as dozens of students signed cards pledging to engage in this year's momentous election.

"It's great to see these students get informed and involved in the election," said Reggie Weaver, campus outreach coordinator with Common Cause North Carolina. "This is the start of what will be an exciting and important effort to help WSSU students make their voices heard at the ballot box and beyond."

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.
