People’s Alliance PAC is a Political Action Committee formed for the purpose of endorsing, supporting, and promoting candidates who will effectively advocate for and implement legislation and policies that advance the principles of the People’s Alliance.
We want people to have the opportunity for a life of accomplishment, dignity, and pride, and to at least have their basic needs met. We adhere to these principles: community guarantee of basic needs; celebration of diversity; stewardship; and local decision-making.
For Durham to be a progressive community in which we want to live, middle-class, working, and lower income people, must identify and select leaders who represent their interests. If these residents of Durham do not have an effective political voice, the views of large businesses and outside special interests will prevail, to the detriment of our community. We also believe that Durham’s people, leaders, and community institutions must address and resolve issues of racial inequity before we can all succeed.
Decisions about the issues that the People's Alliance promotes, and the candidates that our PAC endorses, are made in a democratic manner and the participation of all members in this process is not only encouraged, but is critical to our success.
