La Coalición is a community of Latin Americans, immigrants and allies that promotes full and equal participation of all people in the civic, economic and cultural life of North Carolina through education, celebration and advocacy.
La Coalición envisions a diverse and vibrant North Carolina which embraces, supports and respects people of all cultures and backgrounds.
La Coalición is an immigrant rights organization that is pioneering a model for 21st century democracy building and inclusive community engagement in North Carolina -- a region that has never before experienced such dramatic demographic shifts.
We have developed a multifaceted approach to promote justice and equity called Social Service to Social Action, a strategy that traces an intentional path through direct service intervention, integration support, alliance building, institution and systems change – all building toward meaningful culture and policy change.
Through Social Service to Social Action we seek to:
- Address the root causes of structural exclusion and promote constructive solutions that support inclusive and equitable policies & practices,
- Support grassroots mobilization and engage the traditionally disenfranchised to be advocates for themselves and their families, and
- Build alliances -- with the usual and uncommon allies -- to increase our collective understanding of and our capacity to address the social justice issues in our world.
