WakeUP Wake County Inc

Group

WakeUp Wake County is a member of the liberal extremist Blueprint NC and Democracy NC networks.  Blueprint NC is the radical left-wing political group that gained infamy with their “eviscerate, mitigate, litigate, cogitate and agitate” the state’s leadership memo in 2013. 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 radical political liberal extremist foundation – Z Smith Reynolds Foundation.

Carrying on in the Leftist tradition, Wakeup Wake County,  has developed projects in the form of new activist organizations. Public Schools First NC opposes vouchers and charter schools and is a proponent of expanded pre-school programs.
