100 Days, 100 Stories

We’re 100 days away from Election Day, so we decided to launch a new series: 100 Days, 100 Stories.

For the next 100 days, we’re talking to people across North Carolina about why they’re excited to vote for Hillary. We have a big, diverse state, and we want to hear people’s stories from Murphy to Manteo.

Some North Carolinians have been personally impacted by Hillary’s work. For others, this decision is about the future we want for our kids. Our team’s motivations for joining this fight may differ, but at our core, we know that we are stronger together.

Today, we spoke to Katrina Southerland, an organizer in Onslow County. Check out her story below.

“I got involved because I want to see the Democrats go back into their rightful seats. I want to see change in police shootings of African Americans.

I want to see change among women because women never get focused on and Hillary Clinton can do that.

I want to see children with Medicare, Medicaid, so they can be able to go to the doctor. I want my parents, because they’re on a fixed income, I don’t want their social security cut. I want them to be able to get their medicine on Medicare.

I want to see programs for people that come out of jail, and they get into the streets. When you’re going to register them, they say what’s the need in voting because they don’t have any support system. So basically, I want to see change all around the board, and I know the Democrats can do that.”
