The philosophy of the Friends of Durham is to make Durham a better place for everyone.
We feel that this is best accomplished by focusing our energies on local issues, primarily those issues that fall under the control of the City Council, the County Commission and the School Board. We also focus on local offices like the sheriff, district attorney, clerk of court, and judgeships.
We work to make the local governments which impact Durham citizens more representative of all its citizens and more responsive to the welfare of all its people.
