Activist of the Month: Feet to the Fire

This month we decided to highlight a grassroots organization that is changing Wake County for the better. Together Louis Stannard, Don Carr and Donna Yowell founded the activist group, Feet to the Fire shortly after the 2010 mid-term elections. Quick to gain a following, Feet to the Fire is now a focal point of North Carolina activism for more than 8,000 subscribers. Utilizing new media outreach and face to face meetings these patriots rally around a particular issue and hold North Carolina members accountable.

Donna introduced me to their efforts when I met her at the “Keep NC a Right to Work State” rally at the state capital. Quickly, our efforts became aligned. Now, Feet to the Fire is working with Heritage Action to combat the overregulation and out of control spending that entangles our federal government. Their commitment is making a difference!
