What we do

(To read our mission and vision, visit the About Us page.)

Most issue-based organizing lacks a path to political power. Most electoral campaigns end after election day. Our goal is to harness the two, building a powerful movement that can both elect officials and hold them accountable.
— Sendolo Diaminah, 2018 Campaign Manager of Decriminalize Durham

Durham for All is a grassroots political organization building a new majority 10,000 people strong in our city and county.

Why 10,000? 10,000 is the number of people a progressive Durham needs to elect local officials and hold them accountable to our vision of a Durham with homes, education, economy, sanctuary and democracy for all.

What is the new majority? Durham’s new majority will be a multiracial, cross-class progressive movement led by people of color and working-class people.

We take action together at the ballot box and in the streets to win back our government and put it to work – for all of us. Each year, we take on a new campaign. In 2019, our current campaign is fighting to build an Economy for All.

Every local election, we march to the polls to make voting a community practice that shows our power. Join us!
