DD Adams

North Carolina District 05

DD Adams knows North Carolina's 5th Congressional District inside and out.  A lifelong resident of Winston-Salem who has served in the City Council since 2009, she understands the needs and opportunities that exist for the residents of her district.  

DD Adams is a long-time community organizer who has actively registered and mobilized voters across the district. This work allowed her to build a volunteer base that will be critical to her success.

As a former member of the Teamsters, DD knows the advantages that making a living wage with benefits can provide to families of the 5th District, and she has fought to raise the minimum wage in Winston-Salem to $15 per hour and reduce food insecurity for residents.  

Community engagement is the core of a community’s strength. DD has proposed working with community colleges and small businesses to provide more job training and apprenticeship; working with federal, state and local authorities to ensure high quality public education is equitably funded regardless of where a student may live; and increasing community policing and training so police officers are fully integrated into a community. By implementing these strategies, DD sees the potential for all of the residents of her district to thrive not just survive if leadership builds on the strength of the community.

Urgency and Optimism: Chisholm's Legacy and the Status of Black Women in American Politics Today
By Glynda C. Carr & Kelly Dittmar, Ph.D.

Today would have marked the 91st birthday of an American trailblazer. Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm (D-NY) approached public service with unmatched zeal and urgency. She became the first Black woman elected to the U.S. Congress in 1968, and the first Black person and first woman to win delegate votes at a major party presidential convention in 1972.
