North Carolina Forward Party Launches "Get The Pledge Out" Campaign: Embracing a New Era of Inclusive Politics



September 7, 2023

RALEIGH, N.C. — The North Carolina Forward Party is proud to announce the launch of its "Get The Pledge Out" campaign, a bold and innovative initiative that marks a significant step towards a more inclusive and collaborative political landscape. Forward Affiliates, including existing elected officials, are pledging to govern according to a set of core values that place the people of North Carolina at the forefront of their mission.

The "Get The Pledge Out" campaign is founded on principles that transcend party lines and political divisions, focusing on the shared goal of making our state a better place for all its residents. Forward Affiliates represent a diverse group of leaders who have recognized the need for a bottom-up approach to governance, and they are committed to working together, regardless of party affiliation, to achieve meaningful change.

Forward Affiliates Embrace Core Values:

Bottom-Up, Not Top-Down: We believe in empowering leaders to find local solutions that work for their communities. We reject rigid, top-down policies that fail to address the unique needs of North Carolinians.

Diverse Thinking Isn't Just Welcome, It's Required: We encourage open and fearless conversations around the issues of the day. We believe that silencing debate and refusing to adapt to the modern world are counterproductive.

Work Together, Not Against: #ForwardTogether is a commitment to collaborative solutions that genuinely serve the people. We will constantly evaluate and adjust our approach to ensure we deliver on our promises.

All Are Welcome — Left, Right, or Center: We offer a political home for everyone who is willing to work together in good faith to improve our state. We value diversity of thought and perspective.

More Listening, Less Talking: We are here to serve the communities of North Carolina. We will actively seek input and engagement from residents to better understand their needs and aspirations.

Grace and Tolerance: We believe in approaching one another with grace and tolerance. We are committed to uplifting our fellow citizens, not tearing them down.

Reform Focus: We support election reform policies such as ranked-choice voting and open, nonpartisan primaries to bring more competition and better options to the ballot in local elections.

The North Carolina Forward Party invites all residents, regardless of political affiliation, to join us in this groundbreaking endeavor. We are determined to bridge the gaps that have divided our communities for too long and create a more inclusive and effective political landscape in our state.

We believe that by embracing these core values and working together, we can build a brighter future for North Carolina. The "Get The Pledge Out" campaign is the first step towards realizing that vision.
