FLIP the NC Court: A Launch Party for 2024
FLIP NC is returning from an extended hiatus with a big announcement: We’re back, and we’re focused on the courts! (Read more about our 2024 plan on our blog.)
Join us on Sunday, Feb. 25 at 6 pm at Motorco in downtown Durham for our 2024 launch party. We’ll lay out our strategy for electing progressives to the courts this year and why it’s so critical to the future of our state, hear from our state’s two Democratic Supreme Court associate justices about the role the courts play in our democracy and what’s at stake in this election (more about the esteemed justices below), and mingle with fellow progressives. Let’s commit to winning races from the mountains to the coast – and up and down the ballot – this November!
*** PLEASE NOTE: This is a free event, but registration is required, and we expect to reach capacity quickly!***
The launch party will include time to get a drink and socialize with other progressives before hearing from FLIP NC's leaders as well as Justice Earls and Justice Riggs.
Fired up? Ready to talk to voters between now and Election Day? See you at Motorco for the kickoff.
About Justice Anita Earls:
Earls was elected associate justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court in 2018.
Earls was appointed by President Clinton in 1998 to serve as deputy assistant attorney general in the civil rights division of the U.S. Department of Justice. From 2000 to 2003, she directed the Voting Rights Project at the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. Returning to North Carolina in 2003, she joined Julius Chambers at the UNC Center for Civil Rights as Director of Advocacy.
In 2007, Earls founded the Southern Coalition for Social Justice, a non-profit legal advocacy organization. She served as its executive director for 10 years, litigating voting rights and other civil rights cases.
About Justice Allison Riggs:
Riggs was appointed associate justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court by Gov. Roy Cooper in September 2023. She is filling the remaining term of Justice Michael Morgan, upon his retirement.
Prior to her appointment to the North Carolina Court of Appeals in 2022, Riggs served as the co-executive director for programs and chief counsel for voting rights at the Southern Coalition for Social Justice. Over 14 years, she had the privilege of advocating for those who had been marginalized and disenfranchised, arguing before the U.S. Supreme Court in several landmark redistricting cases.
