About Us

TIGRA (Transnational Institute for Grassroots Research and Action) is a movement center for transnational organizing that promotes financial justice through the economic power of immigrants. TIGRA seeks to promote the practice of “Economic Citizenship” by making every economic choice matter -- no matter a person's immigration status. We practice the values we hold dear: solidarity, cooperation, and empowerment. 

We engage in strategies that leverage the economic power of transnational immigrant families to set economic justice and human rights standards in the policies and practices of industries that depend on their money and labor. Our dream is to make migration an option and not a necessity for economic survival for millions.
