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.
