Reach NC Voices is a statewide project designed to survey North Carolinians in real time to understand how they feel about the broad array of issues facing our students, parents, educators, and communities.

We use innovative methods, such as text and online surveys, to both survey individuals across the state and collect their stories. These insights inform our work. Each week, we publish a newsletter called the Reach Roundup that includes context around a particular issue, data related to that issues, and what North Carolinians had to say about it — with individual’s voices at the center of our coverage.

We want you to be part of the project. Sign up below to be connected to our weekly email newsletter and SMS conversations.

In response to your priorities and stories, we create content, presenting news as it happens and policy analysis as it unfolds, giving context to issues in an effort to build understanding and awareness on the issues defining our shared future.

We hope that you will join us and take part in building a more informed and engaged citizenry.
