In Memoriam uploads

Each year, the Democratic Women of North Carolina pauses during our Annual Convention to honor those who have gone on before.  It is only because of those who came before us, women, men, and friends with the courage to fight for equality and justice, that we are where we are today. We honor their work as Defenders of Democracy through a video we produce each year. Please complete this form for each person you wish to recognize.
