Community Organizing and Collective Advocacy

Our collective advocacy involves:

  • Analyzing social and political issues which affect persons with precarious status
  • Participating and collaborating with multi-sectoral entities, including community, institutional, and legal actors
  • Representation with political and administrative decision-makers
  • Community organizing and mobilization

Through our work with various community, institutional, and legal groups, we are working to build a solid network of partners and allies as well as create channels to build and share varied forms of information and expertise.

Inspired by the autonomous community action movement, we support the mobilizations of communities with precarious status, contributing to individual and collective struggles against the systems of oppression that they face.

Participation in advocacy is divided among members of the team to promote a multidisciplinary approach.
