  • End Gerrymandering Lobby Day After Party

    • Wednesday, March 01, 2017 at 04:30 PM
    • State of Beer in Raleigh, NC

    After a long day of lobbying the legislature alongside like-minded organizations to support non-partisan redistricting reform, Now or Never NC had the privilege of hosting numerous friends for beers, appetizers, and conversation at State of Beer on Hillsborough St. State of Beer is owned by David Meeker, a forward-thinking leader in the business community and member of the anti-gerrymandering organization Business Leaders for Accountability.

  • 2017 Statewide Kick-Off with acclaimed Chef Sunny Gerhart

    • Thursday, March 30, 2017 at 05:30 PM
    • Private Residence
    • $100.00 USD

    Over the past two election cycles, and thanks to great candidates and your support, we've been seeking out and supporting winnable race challengers to break the State Legislative Supermajority and force a competition of ideas again in North Carolina. There are now 8 Now or Never NC alumni serving in the NC House!

    We will be in every corner of the State – and communities in between – seeking out, seed funding, and supporting top challengers who will restore our State. We need just 3 NC House seats to break the Legislative Supermajority, and those seats will not be ceded without a fight; there is no low-hanging fruit in our gerrymandered State.

    We hope you can join us for this special event to help us kick-off this campaign strong!

    When:
    Thursday, March 30, 2017
    Reception from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm

    Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you soon!

  • Break the Supermajority Happy Hour- Durham

    Foster's Market in Durham provided a wonderful atmosphere to network with friends and discuss state legislative races over drinks and appetizers. Friends gathered in support of non-partisan redistricting reform to restore our state to sanity, with the very realistic goal of breaking the legislative supermajority next election cycle (be it 2017 or 2018) to give our Governor veto-power over their radical and harmful agenda.

  • Break the Supermajority Happy Hour- Chapel Hill

    • Wednesday, May 24, 2017 at 05:00 PM
    • The Crunkleton in Chapel Hill, NC

    Now or Never NC again had the honor of hosting friends for drinks, appetizers, and a frank discussion of the need to break the legislative supermajority and restore our state to sanity, this time at the Crunkleton in Chapel Hill.

  • Highway 264 to Sanity Tour

    • Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at 12:00 PM
    • Brewmasters in Wilson, Trollingwood Taproom and Brewery in Greenville, and Ne'er Do Well in Washington

    Now or Never NC took to highway 264 for a day spent networking with friends down-east. Wilson, Greenville, and Washington will be three of the most important competitive districts to pay attention to in the coming election cycle if we hope to break the current legislative supermajority and restore our state to sanity. The day began with lunch at Brewmasters in Wilson, and continued with happy hours at Trollingwood Taproom and Brewery in Greenville and the Ne'er Do Well in Washington.

  • Break the Supermajority Happy Hour- Greensboro

    Friends of Now or Never NC again gathered, this time at Preyer Brewing Company in Greensboro, to discuss state legislative races and the desperate need to break the legislative supermajority before they can invoke further harm to the state we all love.

  • Break the Supermajority in 2017

    Over the 2014 and 2016 election cycles, we’ve backed 7 winning challengers for the NC House, and we need just 3 more seats to break the Legislative Supermajority in that body, help our Governor sustain vetoes of harmful legislation, and restore our State.

    Because of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling this week, we may have special elections for State Legislative in 2017.

    That’s why we’ll gather with friends for a "Break the Supermajority in 2017" happy hour this Thursday, June 8, from 5:30-7:30pm, at The Stag's Head bottle shop, 106 Glenwood Avenue. We will receive an update on the recent court decisions, an overview of our 2017 strategy, and identify ways to put our respective talents to work in breaking the supermajority at the next election.

    Complimentary appetizers (from nearby St. Roch Fine Oysters + Bar). No contribution required. RSVP here or to NowOrNeverNC@gmail.com, and to receive a complimentary beverage.

    Please join us and spread the word. Wherever we are (whether in Raleigh or Rolesville, Rockingham or Roanoke Rapids), we are needed. North Carolina is at a crossroads, and we’re on a journey home to the State we know.
