SOCIAL JUSTICE

ARISE continuously focuses on the community needs, which are always emerging and changing. We have always believed in training & empowering people so that they can be the voices of their own needs; so that they can organize and be the ones who make changes for their own community. Through working directly with colonia residents & including them in the process of working towards change, they have been able to use their voices as catalysts for change. The focus of civic participation is to create an engaged community so that they make the changes needed in education, infrastructure, and immigration.

El proposito de la participación cívica es crear una comunidad activa e involucrada en las decisiones de la educación, infraestructura e inmigración.
