History

Charlottean Doris Cromartie was a Democratic woman who worked tirelessly during the 1950s and 60s on behalf of her party and Democratic women.  Her efforts coupled with her advocacy for the rights of women and children led to a career focused on instructing corporations in civil rights law, equal employment, and child nutrition.

Serving as the first ever President of the Democratic Women of North Carolina, her dream was to organize a Democratic Women's organization in each of North Carolina's 100 counties.

This iconic champion of Democratic ideals serves as a shining inspiration to the  Democratic Women of Mecklenburg County, and it is for this reason that we give our distinguished award her name.
