Southern Coalition for Social Justice
Indy: The Southern Coalition for Social Justice isn’t who you’re going to call for help getting out of a speeding ticket, but the work of its attorneys affects the everyday lives of thousands of North Carolinians nonetheless. The nonprofit was instrumental in prompting policy changes that have led Durham police to stop fourteen thousand fewer drivers in 2017 than they did in 2013 and has been a leading opponent of the legislature’s efforts to gerrymander congressional and legislative districts. SCSJ has also been a strong advocate for raising the age of juvenile jurisdiction (a change that takes effect next year), operates a police data website, criminal-record expungement clinics, and is starting a bail fund to free people being held in jail because they can’t pay to get out. The SCSJ does compassionate, crucial work, and our community is better for it. Sarah Willets

Best Auto Repair in Durham County
Durham Tire & Auto Center
Indy: Without having sampled every auto mechanic in Durham Countymy God, can you imagine the bills?it’s really impossible to assess the single best auto repair shop around. All you have to go on is your necessarily limited personal experience: This guy tried to screw me. This one’s pretty cheap. This dude tried to upsell me into a new transmission. Et cetera.
Same goes for me. I’ve never used the services of any of the auto repair shops that were nominated in this category. I’m sure they’re great. But when I moved to Durham, I lucked out and found a terrific auto repair shop less than a mile away from my house. At Durham Tire & Auto Center on North Roxboro Street, the prices are reasonable, the service folks are incredibly nice and willing to explain exactly what that noise is, and I’ve never once felt like they were trying to hose me. In fact, on one occasion I took my car in, thinking that I needed new brake pads or axles; just about anywhere else, I would’ve been told, “Yeah, sure you do. That’ll be four hundred dollars.” Here? “Nah, you’re fine. You’ve got time. Oh, and we put air in your tires.” Points for honesty. And when we were looking to buy a new car, they even took a look at one we had under consideration for freeand advised against the purchase, which we didn’t make. Points for helpfulness.

In fact, the only issue I’ve had with Durham Tireand the only reason I’d ever go anywhere elseis that they’re not open on weekends. Jeffrey C. Billman

Best Nonprofit in Durham County
Legal Aid
Indy: If you read the INDY, you already know there were 859 eviction cases filed in Durham County during the last fiscal year. For low-income residents facing eviction, Legal Aid of North Carolina, a statewide nonprofit law firm, is one of their only options for legal help. These attorneys are doing yeoman’s work, helping North Carolinians who need it most, despite heavy caseloads and a funding cut last year at the behest of a lawmaker who felt they were overzealous in protecting tenants. In Durham, Legal Aid is taking the eviction crisis head-on, representing tenants in its own practice and through the Eviction Diversion Program, a new partnership with Duke’s Civil Justice Clinic and the Durham County Department of Social Services. It’s now seeking funding to expand the program, but has already succeeded in helping dozens of people avoid displacement, and is shifting the community conversation around housing stability.

Community Empowerment Fund
Indy: The Community Empowerment Fund is a student-powered nonprofit with a broad mission of helping people get out and stay out of homelessness and poverty. In addition to providing financial education and matched savings accounts to its memberswho are treated like equals and not customersCEF also works to identify gaps and hurdles in the processes members go through on the way to stability. This might mean helping individuals connect with hard-to-find, subsidized Section 8 housing or working with former Durham Mayor Bill Bell to convene landlords to talk about what they need to keep their properties affordable and up to standard. CEF even has an Advocacy Choir that sings popular songs rewritten with lyrics about issues like affordable housing. Donations to CEF’s Fearless Fund go toward matching funds for members’ savings accounts. Sarah Willets

A Place at the Table
Indy: A Place at the Table had big shoes to fill. The pay-what-you-can cafe, which opened its doors in January, took up residence in what was formerly the bright and trippy coffeehouse Café de los Muertos. Now the Day of the Dead decor has been swapped for gentle yellow walls decorated with pictures from local photographers. A Place at the Table serves standard cafe faregranola bowls, panini, soupsbut with an interesting twist: You pay (more or less) what you can. The shop provides a suggested price for each item, like $7 for a house salad, but you can pay up to half of what is suggested if you’re short on funds. A donation pot helps account for the missing dollars. A patron can choose to buy a coffee and donate enough for someone else, for example. And if you can’t spare even a penny for an item on the menu, you can volunteer to make up for the cost. It’s a more humane approach to the sometimes-stuffy cafe cultureand so far, it seems to be working. Erica Hellerstein

Best Vintage / Antique Store in the Triangle
Indy: In the words of Saturday Night Live‘s Stefon, Chapel Hill’s Rumors has it all. An overwhelming selection of crop tops, sunglasses galore, sassy pins, and go-to graphic tees for your vintage dudes. A secondhand clothing and selling store, you can also sell your own threads there for cash or store credit (beware, the buyers are selective). One of the more refreshing things about Rumors is that, unlike some posh vintage stores that sell starched clothing at marked-up prices, it actually is affordable. You can find vintage leather bags for $20, old-school windbreakers for $30, and men’s button-downs for less than $10. And, located right off Chapel Hill’s Franklin Street, it’s easily accessible, with many a post-shopping beer option. If only it could clone itself and move over to Raleigh. Erica Hellerstein
