About Mapping the Left
The Mapping the Left (MTL) project combines data, research and news articles to show the magnitude of the radical Left’s infrastructure in North Carolina. For decades, the liberal/progressive movement has mostly been invisible to the general public. Hiding from the “liberal” label, the well-organized progressive movement has built a network of groups that work together to push an extreme, liberal/progressive agenda that the media has failed to report upon.
The MTL project includes more than 140 activist organizations currently comprising seven major networks, including Blueprint, Moral Monday, Democracy NC, HKonJ, Together NC, ACORN and Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation. There are more than 1,800 individuals working in even more positions (including staff and board members) within the groups. Also included in the database are more than 300 funders which have awarded grants in the hundreds of millions of dollars to the included organizations. MTL was created to educate citizens and policy makers. In addition it is a repository of important information which adds transparency to the largest liberal funders and participants in today’s North Carolina political battles.
