People’s Alliance has over 40 years of experience promoting progressive and community-focused values in our community. From clean water to a living wage, from affordable housing to public education, PA will continue to be on the front lines fighting for our vision of a Durham for all. PA needs your support to strengthen the progressive base here in Durham so that we can project our values statewide. Our dream is for Durham to be seen as a beacon for justice and equality in the South.

If you share these values and believe in this work, we need your support! Our volunteer-led organization is made up over 1,000 members and relies 100% on member contributions to continue our work. By joining People’s Alliance, you are becoming part of a community of people deeply committed to making Durham a place where all people can thrive.
