The Capital Area Friends of Transit (CAFT) supports a plan for regional public transit in the Triangle. CAFT is a member of Together NC, the network organized by the liberal policy group – the NC Justice Center. The Justice Center was the incubator for Bluprint NC. Blueprint NC is the radical left-wing group that gained infamy with their “eviscerate, mitigate, litigate, cogitate and agitate” the state’s leadership memo in 2013. Blueprint NC’s founder is David Neal, immediate past president of the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation – the biggest funder of radical and liberal groups in North Carolina.
CAFT is affiliated with another MTL group, WakeUp Wake County. Both groups tend to support policies that lead to higher local taxes. WakeUp Wake County is a member of the liberal extremist Blueprint NC and Democracy NC networks. WakeUP has been involved in issues ranging from transit to education, and has received taxpayer funds to host “forums” on water quality. WakeUP Wake County has received over forty percent of their grant money from the ultra-liberal and political – Z Smith Reynolds Foundation.
