Terashima Endorsements Grow

With the addition this week of the North Carolina Association of Educators (NCAE), the list of endorsements for Eric Terashima, the Democratic candidate for the 17th District of the North Carolina House of Representatives, continues to grow.

The NCAE joins an impressive list of organizations endorsing Terashima’s campaign. They include:

  • Equality for North Carolina

  • The Labor Caucus of the North Carolina Democratic Party

  • The National Association of Social Workers

  • The North Carolina Benevolent Police Association

  • The North Carolina State AFL-CIO

  • Planned Parenthood Votes! South Atlantic

  • The Progressive Turnout Project

  • The Sierra Club

  • Vote Vets

“I’m honored to accept the support of these organizations,” Terashima said. “Together, they represent a broad coalition whose goals and interests for a just and fair society I will represent as a member of the state House of Representatives."

As a 30-year member of the Marine Corps, Terashima has already devoted his career to public service. The retired colonel is now entering a new phase of public service in which he will work to create better opportunities for North Carolina residents in education, housing and equal opportunity.
