Vote for Nida Allam, Michelle Burton, Wendy Jacobs, and Mike Lee for Durham County Board of Commissioners. This progressive team will fund our public schools, educators, and support staff; work for racial equity and criminal justice reform; expand environmental protection and climate change mitigation; and support fair and affordable housing.

Joy Harrell for Durham School Board At Large | Joy’s background as an artist, DPS parent, former elementary and middle school teacher, and former DPS substitute teacher keeps her rooted in the humanity of children and gives her valuable insight into what our schools need in pursuit of equity.
We also endorse unopposed Millicent Rogers, Jessica Carda-Auten and Wendell Tabb to take our Durham Public Schools forward and upward.

Sophia Chitlik for NC Senate District 22 | Sophia will prioritize health care in the Senate, with a particular focus on women’s health and preventing infant mortality through improved access to health care. She’ll fight for public schools, environmental sustainability, and practical solutions for working people.

Satana DeBerry for NC Attorney General | Durham’s own District Attorney has a remarkable track record of progressive reform, using the courts to improve the lives of residents, and focusing on violent crime. As Attorney General, she would bring those reforms to all North Carolinians.

Allison Riggs for NC Supreme Court Seat 6 | Justice Riggs works tirelessly for civil rights and  voting rights. Her deep dedication to justice for all is deeply inspiring. At a time when NC courts are being abused, Justice Riggs will fight for fairness, equality, and justice under the law.
