Our Mission

We came together as residents concerned about the growing threat of discrimination, authoritarianism, division and erosion of freedoms as a result of the 2016 election. We are building a sustainable local organization that can be mobilized to resist dangerous and harmful policies that threaten the freedoms of all people at the local, state and national levels.

Why this group?

  • We focus on Durham, North Carolina
  • We focus on defense
  • We crowdsource ideas for action, we deliberate, and we vote on action items
  • We make it easy for many people to take action as often as they wish and can
  • We are inclusive and led by those who are most active in line with our goals
  • We are preparing for the day when we can advocate for progressive policies

What we do

  • We apply pressure on our representatives when they fail to defend progressive policies
  • We support our representatives that fight for progressive policies
  • We emphasize taking regular, visible action
  • We focus on actions that highlight the impact of regressive government policies and actions on Durham county

How we will do this

  • We have a democratic system for deciding on the actions we want to take as a group
  • We have regular meetings where we deliberate the most pressing and important issues, we brainstorm ideas, we vote on our actions and we assign roles
  • We support the work and initiatives of other progressive organizations

We can't do it without your help
