Barbershop Conversations: F.A.D.E.
One of NRP's cornerstone programs is the Barbershop Conversations: F.A.D.E. (Fruitful African-American Discussions on Empowerment) series. In response to low voter turnout among Black men, NRP created this barbershop series to bring the discussion of voting and community involvement to the place that many black men are familiar with: the barbershop.
By meeting Black men where they are at, F.A.D.E. highlights three things: the power of voting, the community initiatives that they want to accomplish, and their ability to be the solution to the challenges within their communities.
Beauty Salon Conversations: C.U.R.L.S.
NRP's program for black women is the Beauty Salon Conversations: C.U.R.L.S. (Cultivating Unified Relationships with Ladies for Success) series. NRP created this series to bring the discussion of voting and community involvement to the place that many black women are familiar with: the beauty salon.
C.U.R.L.S. focuses on several things: stress & wellness for women, civics at the local government level, and entrepreneurship. By meeting Black women where they are at, C.U.R.L.S highlights three things: the power of voting, the community initiatives that they want to accomplish, and their ability to be the solution to the challenges within their communities.

Our Front Porch County Conversations series is a part of our initiative to further voter engagement within rural North Carolina. Why guess what's stop people from voting when we can ask them?
Canvassers talk with community members within rural NC counties and get them the space to share their experiences. At the same time, we use these opportunities to share local resources and upcoming events. This mutual exchange is how we work to unleash the full potential of rural North Carolina.
