A Community for Everyone

Buncombe Democrats fight for our community every day. As engaged citizens and volunteers, we work to bring better jobs to our county, strengthen our schools, keep everyone healthy, and preserve our environment.

We are your neighbors—from Barnardsville to Arden, Candler to Black Mountain, Big Ivy to Bent Creek. Together, we help our community’s voice be heard. We volunteer to knock on doors, call our neighbors, write letters, register voters, and welcome new people at community events.

We are united by shared values of fairness, integrity, and opportunity for all. The diversity of our backgrounds, viewpoints, and skills makes us strong.

And we believe that our democracy needs citizens who take action, now more than ever.

Join Us.
