The Herald Sun (February 4, 2014) -- “We as a city and county are rich in many resources,” Bell said. “We live in a great place in this state and this country; we have great universities, home to the RTP, many talented persons, a city classified as a creative city, with many entrepreneurs, innovators, and more. We must find a way to harness those many resources to focus or target the reduction in poverty in our community.”

He noted work already underway – End Poverty Durham, the East Durham Children’s Initiative, Relationships Equipping Allies and Leaders (REAL Durham) and “Made in Durham,” spearheaded by MDC and Dr. Victor Dzau, chancellor for health affairs at Duke University.
