Founded in June 5, 2004 in Greensboro, the Cumberland
County Progressives is composed of a broad array of grassroots activists from progressive civil rights and issue movements,
as well as many who were mobilized by the 2004 campaigns of Dennis Kucinich and Howard Dean.
The purpose of the Cumberland County Progressives is
to promote economic, social, and environmental justice, peace and sustainability in North Carolina; to maximize the
democratic process, to advocate for today’s most pressing issues and to serve as a voice of conscience.
Our ultimate goal is to educate, bring unbiased and informative political information for the citizens of Cumberland
County and the means by which citizens can effect change.
