About Us

Mission Statement

We are a concerned group of citizens who seek to bring about change by focusing on issues that affect our community and by holding elected officials accountable. ​ ​We seek to let our collective voices be heard to influence positive change.

How we got started

One night, shortly after the Women’s March in D.C. on January 21, 2017, four women and one man (Kathryn Garcia, Jayne Stasser, and John Bloom) sat around the dinner table and discussed what the next step would be in keeping the momentum going of resisting Trump’s agenda for America. And so, Pamlico Progressives was conceived.

A meeting was held and people showed up and signed up and at the next meeting even more people showed up and by the third one we had to move to the main courtroom to accommodate everyone. How encouraging!
