It is with great sadness that we remember Janice Covington Allison, a true pioneer in the NC Trans Community who passed away today.
She was an early member of our auxiliary and served as a Caucus Congressional District Chair before moving on to help found the NCDP’s Transgender Political Caucus.
She was also the first transgender delegate from NC to the Democratic National Convention in 2012 and then again in 2016.
She will be remembered and missed.
A GoFundMe has been set up to help with final expenses for anyone who would like to contribute.https://www.gofundme.com/f/avzr5-final-expenses-for-janice
