Statement of Ideals and Values
LEAD NC seeks to cultivate leaders who strongly support the following ideals:

All of North Carolina’s children deserve access to a quality and equitable public education that is adequately funded, as guaranteed by the state Constitution.

Both private enterprise and government are essential for creating opportunity and growth, and our economy should work for everyone, not just those at the top.

In order to provide energy that is critical to North Carolina’s economic growth and well-being, we must develop cleaner, more renewable forms of energy while protecting our natural resources and ensuring a healthy and safe environment for current and future generations.

North Carolina citizens have the right to accessible and fair elections free of unnecessary obstacles and intimidation.
Women have the right to decide if and when they will have a child, and everyone has the right to parent the children they already have in safe environments and healthy communities.

The unique mission and purpose of government is to promote the public interest and help create a high quality of life and community well-being.

LEAD NC expects the people with work with to adhere to the following principles:

Inclusiveness: ability to work with diverse communities, across race, class, sexual orientation and gender identity

Integrity: ability to discern between right and wrong, a willingness to act on that discernment even at personal cost and to openly/publicly stand for what you believe to be right
