Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Social services allow us to provide much-needed assistance to our community and integrate them into our organizing work. Education helps individuals assess and critically analyze the issues that affect the community. Culture roots us as communities of color and immigrants living in the U.S. Organizing equips community members with the tools and capacity to find solutions to issues that affect them and direct and implement strategies for social change. Finally, Coalition Building ensures that all communities can move forward together.
