What We Do
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
- 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
IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:
How We Are Impacted:
COVID-19 is impacting our ability to serve the Latino & immigrant community of Charlotte who desperately need immediate crisis assistance.
How You Can Help - Financial Donations Requested:
We need financial donations to keep our staff paid! We are concerned that planned gifts and grants may be delayed because of COVID-19. Without our bilingual staff, many Spanish speaking only families in Charlotte will go without food, housing assistance, and legal aid, without the services and referrals conducted by the Coalition. We are asking for $10,000 to make sure our client-facing staff will continue to generate income so they can continue to serve during these unpredictable times.
