REAL Durham is an anti-poverty initiative housed under Durham Congregations in Action. They seek to leverage the power of relationships and access to combat poverty in East Durham and work for economic stability on individual and systemic levels. REAL Durham partners with EDCI to engage leaders, allies, and volunteers across lines of race, class, gender, and so on. This includes EDCI families who are interested in improving their financial stability, social supports, and community. The group meets regularly at Antioch Baptist Church on Holloway Street.
