It has been a tremendous honor to serve on the North Carolina Supreme Court since my appointment by Governor Roy Cooper in September of 2023. I’m excited about the opportunity to run in November 2024 for a full term on the court.
I’ve spent my entire career fighting for equal justice under the law for every person, regardless of wealth or skin color. Prior to my appointment to the North Carolina Court of Appeals (read my opinions here) and then to the North Carolina Supreme Court, I served as the Co-Executive Director for Programs and Chief Counsel for Voting Rights at the Southern Coalition for Social Justice in Durham, North Carolina. For the 14 years I was there, I had the privilege of advocating for those who had been marginalized and disenfranchised, arguing before the U.S. Supreme Court in several landmark redistricting cases.
