Homeowners Talk Taxes with Commissioners, County Staff

15 ONE Wake leaders (homeowners and supporters) met with three Wake County Commissioners and County staff Thursday evening for a collaborative brainstorming session to identify potential solutions to keep long time, low income homeowners in their homes.

This conversation was held in advance of a County Commissioner work session this coming Monday during which all Commissioners will revisit options to assist struggling homeowners which were originally presented by the County Manager's office on February 28. 

During the conversation Thursday night homeowners shared moving testimonies and gave valuable feedback to the options listed in the Feburary 28 presentation. Commissioners and staff were receptive and engaged, and in the evaluation following the meeting all leaders present were hopeful that we are headed towards real relief for homeowners across Wake County. 

The Wake Commissioners will meet for their work session this Monday at 2pm. A livestream link  for the meeting will be available here for all ONE Wake members who want to observe from home. 

ONE Wake Leaders Meet with Sister Organizations to Discuss Statewide Action

16 leaders from Wake County met with leaders from our sister IAF organizations in Durham, Orange, Forsyth, and Mecklenburg on Tuesday night to discuss a potential collective action with candidates for US Senate and other statewide races. Along with discussing the potential action, it was a great opportunity for us to begin to relate across North Carolina and imagine what we could accomplish together in the long term! 

The next meeting is on July 12 at 6pm (Zoom). Please contact us at [email protected] if you are interested in participating.  

Here's What's Next for ONE Wake

This fall ONE Wake will invest in a seven week long non-partisan, relational GOTV campaign to engage 3,800 infrequent voters across Wake County. The GOTV campaign will lead up to a 1,000 person hybrid action on October 13 when we will ask local candidates for Raleigh City Council and the Wake County Commissioners to publicly react to our grassroots agenda for change. 

Recruit 5 members from your institution to volunteer for relational GOTV this fall
