COMMUNITY ADVOCACY

Get professional and financial support from external sources and also reach and recruit individuals from within the communities to step up and take commitment for leadership on behalf of their community and also prepare for future actions to influence policy makers.

TRAINING AND EDUCATION

Although our community members know very well what their problems are, in planning actions to solve them they need training and education about leadership, how the system in the US works, how to get organized and strategies and select tactics for each group of problems.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

Social challenges can only be met through collective action, dialogue and the strengthening of social networks. Thus we need to nurture an appreciation and understanding of facilitate leadership. To do that we need Leadership Development as a strategy

VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS

Immigrants have difficulty voicing their issues and demands due to simultaneously multiple barriers including but not limited to linguistic & cultural barriers, stereotypes, misconceptions and absence of one organized platform to have one loud voice.

CIVIL ENGAGEMENT AND ORGANIZING

Civic engagement means working to make a difference in the civic life of our communities and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make that difference. It means promoting the quality of life in a community, through both political and non-political processes.
