The Mapping the Left (MTL) project combines data, research and news
articles to show the magnitude of the radical Lefts infrastructure in North Carolina. For
decades, the liberal/progressive movement has mostly been invisible to the general public.
Hiding from the liberal label, the well-organized progressive movement has built a network
of groups that work together to push an extreme, liberal/progressive agenda that the media
has failed to report upon.
The MTL project includes more than 150 activist organizations currently comprising seven
major networks, including Blueprint NC, Moral Monday, Democracy NC, HKonJ, Together NC,
ACORN, The Environment and Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation. There are more than 2,000
individuals working ineven morepositions (including staff and board members) within the
groups. Also included in the database are more than350 funders which have awarded grants
in the hundreds of millions of dollars to the included organizations. MTL was created to
educate citizens and policy makers. In addition it is a repository of important information
which adds transparency to the largest liberal funders and participants in todays North
Carolina political battles.
