Community Meeting about Education Cuts - June 14th

Durham residents concerned about the state budget have an opportunity to affect the final vote by traveling to Oxford, NC on Tuesday, June 14th at 7pm for a community meeting with legislators from Granville, Vance, Person and Durham Counties. All the legislators from these counties have been invited, including Representative Jim Crawford, a Democrat currently voting with the Republican majority on the budget. Your attendance at First Baptist Church in Oxford will contribute to the pressure on Representative Crawford -- and all our legislators -- to support a budget that truly protects education and social services.

CAN Delegates Assembly

On Sunday, May 22nd, Durham CAN (Congregations, Associations and Neighborhoods) held their internal assembly. PA delegates were in attendance, and PA's top two issues (education and very affordable housing) were among the top five issues voted on for upcoming action campaigns.


PA is now calling for members to attend the CAN Delegate's Assembly on Sunday, June 5th from  3-4:30pm at the Watts Street Baptist Church (800 Watts). Public officials from the city, county, school system, as well as Chamber of Commerce members will be in attendance. It has the nature of a rally, things always start and end on time, and PA needs AT LEAST 15 persons to come. This is a great chance to wear your PA t-shirts and buttons!
