DCIA is a cooperative, multi-faith network offering care and support for the most vulnerable and forgotten in our community, and planting seeds in new initiatives to change lives in Durham. Its mission is to bring together congregations to promote understanding across boundaries of faith, race and ethnicity and build an inclusive community of justice and peace.

DCIA Affirmation…In a spirit of reconciliation and with gratitude for the gift of diversity, DCIA seeks to engage and empower people of faith to create a community of justice and peace through our common prayers and acts of compassion; and with prophetic courage to act as advocates for the dignity and well-being of all persons, recognizing that behind every human face is the face of God.

NEW!  DCIA offers “A Fair Balance,” a four-session Bible study and discussion guide on workers’ rights.  Churches are welcome to download and use parts or all of it as a resource for classes or discussion groups.  DCIA will be glad to assist in contacting potential presenters from local workers’ rights campaigns as additional resources for programs at congregations.  Download here: FairBalanceForWorkerJustice,DCIA-Full
