Durham Committee on the Affairs of Black People Endorses Josh Stein

Yesterday, the Durham Committee on the Affairs of Black People (DCABP), one of Durham’s oldest and most influential political action committees, announced its endorsement of Attorney General Josh Stein for the 2024 gubernatorial election. Josh has earned the support of DCABP in every statewide campaign he has run.

“Since 1935, DCABP has worked to ensure all North Carolinians have the chance to participate in our democracy and use their voice to build political power and create a better future for all people –  I am honored to have their support in this race,” said Attorney General and candidate for Governor Josh Stein. “As Governor, I will continue working arm-in-arm with the committee to build a North Carolina rooted in our shared values of freedom, justice, and opportunity for every person.” 

“Throughout his entire career, Attorney General Stein has taken on tough fights to stand up for North Carolina’s most vulnerable residents,” said DCABP PAC Chair Cassandra Stokes. “We are proud to support his campaign for governor and look forward to working together to make our state a place where all North Carolinians have the opportunity to thrive.”  

Josh’s service to the state began in Durham where he worked with the Self-Help Credit Union to revitalize the Walltown neighborhood and make affordable single-family home ownership a reality for working families. As Attorney General and a state Senator, Josh Stein has tirelessly worked to protect the rights and wellbeing of every North Carolinian. As Governor, he will continue to fight to expand the promise of North Carolina to all people – that if we work hard, where we come from will not limit how far we can go.

The Durham Committee joins Governor Roy Cooper, North Carolina AFL-CIO, NCAE, League of Conservation Voters, Let America Vote / End Citizens United, and Reproductive Freedom For All, and more than 150 former and current elected officials in supporting Josh Stein’s vision for a safer and stronger North Carolina.
