North Carolina State House, District 11
Allison Dahle is an advocate, activist, community leader from Wake County running for State House District 11 in North Carolina. A proud North Carolinian, she currently lives in her hometown of Raleigh with her wife.
After graduating from the University of South Carolina, Allison pursued a successful career in theatre and stage management before finding her calling as a community rehabilitation specialist - supporting employment programs, training, and services for persons with disabilities.
That calling eventually brought her back home to North Carolina, where she led efforts to provide supported employment programs for the disabled community throughout North Carolina. Allison has served in an advisory or leadership role with a host of organizations focused on progressive change and community growth, including President of Carolina Designers Craftsman Guild, the Pullen Memorial Baptist Church, Mothers Demand Action, ARC of North Carolina, Young Adult Institute, Planned Parenthood, and the Women’s March.
Allison knows that the people of District 11 want change from the Republican-controlled legislature. The Republican leadership in Raleigh has cut funding for public schools, passed laws like HB2 that harm the LGBT community, and refused to take action to protect our air and water from pollution. Allison is ready to change the status quo and stand up for justice and equality for all.
Allison understands the importance of a living wage, the necessity of funding women’s health, and the financial and social implications of harmful bills like HB2. She is ready to build a culture of ethics, transparency, and accountability in the legislature, to stand up to a culture of sexual misconduct and harassment in the workplace, to work tirelessly to protect the rights of immigrants and refugees and ensure North Carolina is a welcoming, inclusive state, and to confront corporations polluting North Carolina’s air and water.
