“It’s People, Not Money” – 25 Years of Democracy NC and the Legacy of Bob Hall

Bob Hall speaks at Democracy NC event in May 2017.

Kenny produced a video celebrating the 25 year pro democracy work of Democracy NC and the legacy and leadership of long-time Executive Director Bob Hall. Kenny worked closely with Meredith Emmett and others to tell the inspiring story of Democracy NC, the civil rights roots and successes of the organization, and the role Bob Hall has played in strengthening democracy and good governance in North Carolina.

More from the Democracy North Carolina website….

We are a nonpartisan organization that uses research, organizing, and advocacy to increase voter participation, reduce the influence of big money in politics and achieve a government that is truly of the people, by the people and for the people. Democracy NC grew out of Democracy South which began as a project of the Institute for Southern Studies. For more than 20 years, we’ve taken on powerful industries and political leaders, regardless of party, and promoted reforms that expand public involvement in the political process. Here are highlights of some research reports, as well as formal complaints that we’ve filed against Democrats and Republicans since 1991.

We envision a government that is truly “of the people, for the people and by the people,” where barriers to vote or serve in public office are removed. We want people to have confidence in their political system and feel ownership of their government, and we want elected officials to represent and respect the diversity and interests of the people they were elected to serve.
