North Carolina Senate

Sen. Julie Mayfield, District 49

The FFRF Action Fund is pleased to endorse state Sen. Julie Mayfield, who is running for reelection in the 49th Senate District.

Sen. Mayfield, a Democrat, is an openly nonreligious attorney, human rights and environmental advocate. She has represented the 49th District in Buncombe, N.C., since her election in 2020. Of special note, she swore on a U.S. Constitution rather than a bible when elected to a seat on the Asheville City Council and has cited her “nonreligious worldview” in support of legislation.

Sen. Mayfield supports the separation between state and church, as well as reproductive freedom and bodily autonomy. She has received numerous endorsements by women’s and LGBTQ-plus rights groups, among others.

Sen. Mayfield is endorsed by Equality NC, Pro-Choice North Carolina and Planned Parenthood South Atlantic, among a broad coalition of many other groups.

This year’s state elections are crucial for North Carolina. FFRF Action Fund is pleased to endorse Sen. Mayfield, and asks all of our North Carolina advocates to encourage others to vote for her. Please find out more about her by visiting her campaign website
