Events & Opportunities

Honor the Sacredness of Work and the Dignity of All Workers

Join the Call for a Raise in the Minimum Wage!

The 2017 Labor Sabbath, September 1-3

Join in prophetic support for fair wages, fair protections, and dignity for working people. Durham’s home health workers, education workers, childcare workers, and fast food workers stand together–does your faith community stand with them? Visit laborsabbath.org

For your mosque, synagogue, or other spiritual community, download resources from Interfaith Worker Justice by clicking here.

If your church uses the Revised Common Lectionary, use Exodus 3:7 for a theme from the readings: “Then the Lord said, ‘I have observed the misery of my people who are in Egypt; I have heard their cry on account of their taskmasters. Indeed, I know their sufferings.”

For your church, download and use “A Fair Balance – The Bible, Workers and Economic Justice in the 21st Century” for a study group or sermon preparation.


Our Mission

Durham Congregations in Action 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.

Our 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.
