Durham CAN Action with Schools, Police

Durham CAN Action with Schools, Police

 — At a gathering of nearly 500 people this week, Durham CAN members applauded changes in Durham Public Schools and the Durham Police Department that the organization has helped negotiate with officials.

The police will now be required to get written consent before searching vehicles, said Mark-Anthony Middleton, pastor of Abundant Hope Christian Church and a member of CAN (Congregations, Associations and Neighborhoods).

“Durham is now a national model for what it looks like when citizens that are informed, committed and organized get together to do something,” said Middleton, who led a CAN coalition to address race in policing in Durham.

CAN also announced at Tuesday night’s assembly that after meetings with new Durham Public Schools Superintendent Bert L’Homme, the district’s universal breakfast program will be expanded to all schools.
