“As a fellow, one of my main assignments has been to help organize precincts and organize roundtables in key leadership in eastern NC counties with the expectation of being able to carry them over into the Democrats corner when elections come around. This fellowship has allowed me the opportunity to be flexible with exploring my talents so that I can contribute to the goals of the NC Democratic Party.”

– Devonte Wilson, 2018 Fellow
