Movement for Justice in El Barrio

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: June 22, 2011, 12:38 AM

Description

Movement for Justice in El Barrio is an immigrant-led, grassroots organization fighting for justice in East Harlem, New York. Movement was founded to fight against a voracious trend towards gentrification that is devouring affordable housing and displacing low-income families from their homes.

Members practice collective decision-making and democracy at regularly-held leadership meetings where they participate in skills-building workshops and deepen their political analysis through workshops on the root causes of injustice and other locally-based social justice movements around the world.

Movement requires the community to set the direction of the organization through participatory democracy and was named the "Best Power to the People Movement in NYC" by the Village Voice.
