Our mission is to Educate and Activate the residents of Raleigh.

We want them to be informed about their government so they are able to make the best decisions in electing leaders for the City of Raleigh.

We were able to make a profound impact on the 2022 Raleigh City Council election by being a pivotal influence in the election of four new members to city council which broke the stronghold Mayor Baldwin had with her 7 – 1 council majority.

We also advocated successfully to improve many rezoning cases and continue to work to ensure all voices are represented during council deliberations.

In recognition of our successes, LIVABLE RALEIGH was twice voted winner of INDY Week’s Best Local Activist Group award.

Livable Raleigh is an All Volunteer, Non-Profit Organization
