“Moving towards a world of lasting peace and justice calls us to go beyond paternalistic forms of assistance; it calls us to create new forms of participation that include popular movements and invigorate local, national and international governing structures with that torrent of moral energy that springs from including the excluded in the building of a common destiny. And all this with a constructive spirit, without resentment, with love. I accompany you wholeheartedly on this journey. From our hearts let us say together: No family without housing, no farmworker without land, no worker without rights, no one without the dignity that work provides.”

– Pope Francis, from his address to the participants in the World Meeting of Popular Movements, October 28, 2014

Catholic Social Justice in Action – Get Involved!

Durham CAN* has been working on affordable housing and is moving to address barriers to sustainable living wage employment in order to expand the opportunities for everyone in our community to flourish.

 

* Durham Congregations Associations and Neighborhoods

  • Durham CAN is an organization of over 24 diverse congregations, neighborhoods, and non-profit organizations who work together to address pressures on local families related to affordable housing, living wages, immigration enforcement, the criminal justice system, and access to quality education.
  • Durham CAN addresses the roots of injustice through listening, organizing, and collective action. They gather representatives of member organizations together 3-4 times per year to share stories, identify solutions, and seek support from locally-elected officials.
