Passionate, Principled, Progressive

Howdy, I'm Michael Careccia...

...a worker's rights advocate and progressive organizer in Western North Carolina.

I moved to Lenoir, NC in 2012 and immediately became involved in the community, working to increase youth engagement in politics and organizing to protect our mountain environment.

Michael has always felt a deep connection to the Appalachian mountains as much of his family are from Western North Carolina and other parts of the Appalachian region.
