How it all began . . .
Hillsborough Progressives Taking Action (HPTA) started with a few local individuals who wanted to carry forward the momentum from the historical Women’s Marches that, on January 21, 2017, marked strong national resistance to oppression and inequality. HPTA began with a few online posts, some enthusiastic exchanges, and then rapidly expanded into a structured group of over 500 individuals who have a stake in the well-being of the wider Hillsborough community. Our group can be found in the Indivisible Guide among many other activist groups in the Triangle area of North Carolina.
