About Us

We are a nonpartisan, political advocacy organization based in Raleigh, NC. Our goal is to empower minorities in Raleigh and Wake County.

Founded in 1932, the Raleigh-Wake Citizens Association is Raleigh’s oldest African American political organization, and one of the oldest and most influential in North Carolina.

Since its beginning, the RWCA’s purpose has been to protect, encourage, educate, and help the citizens of Raleigh and Wake county in their civic, economic, social, educational and political advancement.
