We are highlighting this organization because it engages in a “community justice”-oriented approach to political change.
The Student Immigrant Movement (SIM) is a MA-based statewide immigrant youth-led organization. SIM fights for the liberation of the undocumented community through the development of a network of immigrant youth organizers in high-density immigrant communities.
Example of their community justice framework:
SIM employs a decentralized “democratic centralist” model. That means that as long as you are a young immigrant (ages 13-30), and want to contribute to SIM in any kind of way, you are welcome to join.
Types of projects and programs:
- Organize youth, ages 13-30
- Provide political education and leadership training
- Create safe healing spaces
