Be the change You Seek
We believe that through empowerment, popular education style programming and civic engagement, we will build a movement for change that is effective and sustainable. As an organization, we see our chief responsibility as connecting people with the resources they need in order to become the solutions they seek.
In our work we:
- Support grassroots mobilization and engage the traditionally disenfranchised (immigrants, youth, and the undocumented) to be advocates for themselves and their families.
- Build alliances - with the usual and uncommon allies- to increase our understanding of and our capacity to address the social justice issues in our communities.
- Address the root causes of structural exclusion and promote constructive solutions that support inclusive and equitable policies & practices.
