Our members are bringing together a multiracial, cross-class movement into a political home led by people of color and working people. We vote together, we take action together, we build our leadership together, and we fund our movement together.
Join us! Our three criteria for membership are:
- Pay membership dues.
- Agree to our principles.
- Live, work, or study in Durham County.
Sign up below to become a member by paying dues and agreeing to our principles! If you don’t need to pay dues because you already contributed financially via sustainership or a one-time donation this year, complete the member confirmation form. If you want to contribute financially without becoming a member, you can make a donation at our Donate page.
We ask our members to pay dues by making a personally significant financial contribution each calendar year — minimally $20 per year. Depending on our income, wealth, and class status, this will look different for each of us. Some members will sustain at $2/month and others at $20/year. Some may sustain at $10/month and others at $50/month. And some members may sustain monthly and also contribute $5,000, $10,000 or more each year.
Why dues? Our goal is to grow into a fully member-funded organization! A multiracial, cross-class organization with 10,000 members will get us to the political power we need to both create a Durham for all and defeat the far right here and beyond. Your dues help make that happen! The majority of our expenses are for grassroots organizing and leadership development within working-class and people-of-color communities. Sign up below!
