We, the Carteret County Democratic Party, stand in solidarity with our black and brown brothers and sisters. We are angry and we are upset. We mourn with you and we stand beside you in protest. We will say their names out loud. We will fight for racial equality and equity. We call for an end to the systemic racism in our justice system, education system and beyond. We hear your cries and we feel your pain. We vow to hold our police and elected officials accountable when necessary. Black lives matter.
In solidarity, Katie Tomberlin, Carteret County Democratic Party Chair
