What's Happening

Voters of NC – Heidi & Adnane

“I felt more confident going inside a building to vote when the president wasn't the president yet, I felt safer to be honest. With everything going on right now, I didn't feel as safe going in to vote with all the racism going on and wearing a hijab. I felt like I was going to be attacked.  I had a good experience once I got inside, everyone was welcoming and nice and very helpful.

I’m hoping that we get someone in office who is for the community. I want more unity, that's really what I'm hoping for. Just more unity,less racism. And that's really what I want. I just want more world peace.”
