Serving All Communities in Wake County

Our Founders

On February 8, 2003, thirty-nine distinguished elected officials, leaders and advocates of the African American Democratic State Executive Committee (SEC) united to ensure that the interests and concerns of African Americans were included and addressed by the State SEC. Their valiant efforts led to the SEC’s adoption of a resolution to recognize the creation of the first African American Caucus as an official organization and auxiliary of the Party.
