Omid Advocates for Human Rights
The mission of Omid Advocates for Human Rights is to promote, advance and represent the human, legal and civil rights of Middle Eastern communities in the United States. Recognizing that social, economic, political and racial inequalities continue to exist in the United States, Omid Advocates is committed to the pursuit of equality and justice for all sectors of our society with a specific focus directed toward addressing the needs of low-income Middle Eastern clients. As a community organization, we are committed to providing a safe space where Middle Eastern families can access services, meet, and hold activities. We seek to improve our collective capacity to address our immediate and long term needs as Iranians and as part of a multi-ethnic Middle Eastern community, through organizing, advocacy, and service. Our goal is to deepen our understanding of our history and culture as Iranians and as part of the Middle Eastern community, and heighten our consciousness of our civil and human rights. We are dedicated to building civic participation and grassroots leadership, and to strengthen our commitment and responsibility to each other, our community, and the larger society.
