Put your UU values in action!  See local government and effective political action at its best!  Support Durham CAN’s vision of making Durham a Living Wage City.
 
Durham CAN has a MAJOR action planned with City Leaders and Elected Officials   The action will center on the work we have been doing on our Jobs Campaign and will focus specifically on 1) Increasing access to job training for Durham residents who have not benefitted from the economic growth in our area and 2) Making Durham a Living Wage City. To read more about the action: Grand Vision
 
We have pledged 25 friends and members of ERUUF to stand in solidarity with other congregations and neighborhoods in Durham and show our elected officials and business leaders that the issues of making sure job training is available to our most vulnerable Durham residents and paying a living wage are our issues too. No one in our community should lack access to job training and no one should have to work multiple jobs to make ends meet. 
 
Make no mistake about it.  Durham CAN, with its 27 member organizations, gets results.  And your support is critical. Join local activists from these 27 local organizations and churches as we display our collective power.  
 
Please help us meet our pledge. It is a small commitment, less than 2 hours, with a big impact and we would deeply appreciate your participation. Register to attend here.
