Durham for All
Durham for All February 13 2019:
We are excited to bring on a new member to our staff! Next month, Bennett Carpenter will be joining the team as our Lead Organizer.
Bennett has been part of the Durham for All family since 2017 and last year led our fundraising efforts. We are excited about their labor organizing background, commitment to leadership development, groundedness under pressure, and strategic creativity that they will bring to the Lead Organizer role!
Come through this Friday to congratulate Bennett and hear about progress on our Decriminalize Durham co-governance work, plus a sneak peek at the campaign we'll be launching later in the year.

Durham Beyond Policing Coalition
Manju Rajendran June 3 2019·
Tonight we will see you at Durham City Hall at 7pm to speak about the 2019-2020 budget. We will urge our Mayor and Council: no to the police chief’s proposed expansion of 72 new police officers over the next three years; yes to living wages for all public service workers; yes to the creation of a Community-Led Safety and Wellness Task Force; yes to fully funding existing programs that receive City of Durham support like the Eviction Diversion program and Welcome Home.
Wear red! Or rep for an organization you're a part of.

Supporting the Kurds
December 28, 2015, Sendolo Diaminah posted on his FaceBook page supporting the Kurds;
- The Kurdish people have been engaged in an inspiring struggle to carve out freedom and autonomy for themselves, both from the corrupt states of Turkey, Iraq, and Syria AND from ISIS. Now the Turkish government is ramping up its repression of the Kurdish freedom movement. The first step in solidarity must be educating ourselves about this powerful struggle for freedom and rallying to its defense.
