Congressman G. K. Butterfield (D-NC-1) And Rev. Dr. T. Anthony Spearman, president of the NC NAACP have joined many of North Carolina’s black leadership in endorsing the Time for Colors civic engagement action plan.

“Imagine the kind of power our community would have if all HBCU students exercised their constitutional right to vote,” said Congressman Butterfield in a statement to GDN. The congressman is a former chair of the Congressional Black Caucus who has served in Congress since 2004 and is an alum of North Carolina Central University.
