These Candidates Won Their 2020 Races

Equality North Carolina couldn't be prouder of the 83 candidates who won their races this election cycle, with four races still outstanding.

These victorious pro-equality candidates won as a result of the dedicated folks all across this state who volunteered their time, money, and energy to help get them into office. From all of us at ENC, THANK YOU for the role you played in helping get them elected. We can't wait to see what they accomplish -- congratulations!
