History And Accomplishments
The Durham People’s Alliance is a progressive community organization with a history of accomplishment on a wide range of city and county issues including education, the environment, economic justice and sound economic growth for our community.
People’s Alliance has been the driving force behind passing a “livable” wage ordinance Durham. PA has been instrumental in focusing the mission of the Economic Development Commission on measurably reducing poverty in our community. PA also is participating in a welfare reform coalition which was formed to address problems which arise as women and children are cut from public assistance.
Since its founding in 1976, the People’s Alliance has played a significant role — often in the face of strong opposition — in the success of several progressive accomplishments.
