Each year we have a primary campaign to help us build a new majority that takes action together at the ballot box and in the streets.
Economy for All
This year, it’s time to build an economy that works for all of us. Unaffordable housing and poverty wages are producing a deeply unequal Durham. Change starts by putting more decision-making power in the hands of people of color and working class people in order to democratize Durham’s economy. Together, we will connect three efforts to challenge inequality and democratize decisions about Durham’s economy.Learn more
In 2018, our Decriminalize Durham campaign fought to stop the criminalization of drugs, immigration, and poverty in our community – and we won powerful victories! Together, we powered progressive D.A. and sheriff candidates to victory and secured commitments from them to end mass incarceration, stop deportations, and co-govern with directly impacted members of our community.Learn more
In 2017, we launched the 10K Strong campaign, our first major campaign towards building a multiracial, cross-class progressive movement in Durham. Through our base-building work, we deepened our organizing and leadership development in working-class communities and communities of color. We ended the campaign with Durham entering a new chapter in our history with the most progressive city council Durham has ever had!Learn more
Fund Our Homes
In 2016, we kicked off our first campaign, Fund Our Homes, an advocacy campaign where we knocked on hundreds of doors to educate Northeast Central Durham residents on the impact of the Property Tax Revaluation and availability of existing tax relief resources for homeowners. We worked with residents and city officials to advocate for a revamp of Durham’s minor home repairs program as a way to provide tax relief for homeowners and to protect the cost of housing for renters.Learn more
