About Siembra NC

Siembra NC (and our c3 affiliate, Somos Siembra) is a grassroots organization focused on building power by organizing our Latinxs gente in North Carolina. We’re part of the movement to overturn the New Confederacy by electing candidates up and down the ballot who will back our campaigns to reclaim stolen wages, stop exploitative landlords and keep ICE, sheriffs and police from separating, jailing and abusing Black & Brown North Carolinians. In addition to successful campaigns to defend workers, stop evictions and free dozens from ICE jails, we’ve registered thousands of Latinos to vote each of the last three years and, with our partners at Mijente, led the largest Latino voter engagement door program in state history in 2020. We’re part of a movement ecosystem that successfully mobilized over 400,000 additional progressive voters in last year’s presidential election, in one of only six states to gain a congressional seat following the 2020 Census, and one of only two with a competitive US Senate race in 2022.
