The International Migrants Alliance (IMA) is a global alliance of organizations of grassroots migrants, refugees and displaced peoples. It was established in 2008.
The International Migrants’ Alliance (IMA) is the first-ever global alliance of organizations of grassroots migrants, refugees and displaced peoples. Established in June 2008, the IMA aims to strengthen and put forward the voice of the grassroots migrants on issues affecting them and their families. From issues of remittance to rights and welfare to the resolution of forced labor migration, the IMA lays down its analysis from the grassroots migrants’ point of view and challenge the current system and its mechanisms like the Global Forum on Migration and Development. Currently, the IMA has more than 120 member organizations from more than 30 countries worldwide. Its membership is divided into two – regular members, for grassroots organizations; and associate members, for organizations and institutions that support the causes of migrants. For more information, or if you wish to join the IMA, please email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) is the nation’s leading voice for dignity and fairness for the millions of domestic workers in the United States, most of whom are women.Founded in 2007, NDWA works for the respect, recognition, and inclusion in labor protections for domestic workers. The national alliance is powered by 53 affiliate organizations—plus our first local chapter in Atlanta—of over 20,000 nannies, housekeepers, and caregivers for the elderly in 36 cities and 17 states.
NDWA is winning improved working conditions while building a powerful movement rooted in the human rights and dignity of domestic workers, immigrants, women, and their families by:
- Working with a broad range of groups and individuals—including supporters like you—to change how we value care, women, families, and our communities.
- Developing women of color leaders and investing in grassroots organizations to realize their potential.
- Building powerful state, regional, and national campaigns for concrete change.
Domestic workers care for the things we value the most: our families and our homes. They care for our children, provide essential support for seniors and people with disabilities to live with dignity at home, and perform the home care work that makes all other work possible. They are skilled and caring professionals, but for many years, they have labored in the shadows, and their work has not been valued. These workers deserve respect, dignity and basic labor protections. Domestic work is the work that makes all other work possible. Together, we can win the protections and recognition that this vital American workforce needs. Join us today.
Long Beach Rising! is a a comprehensive civic engagement program in partnership with local organizations to promote civic participation, alliance building, voter engagement, and community organizing amongst communities historically marginalized from the political process, including low-income communities.
The Filipino Migrant Center spearheaded the creation of the Coalition to End Wage Theft in Long Beach. We are actively working on raising the wage to $15/hour, passing a policy on wage enforcement to address the issue of employers stealing wages, and guaranteed paid sick days for all workers.
We envision a city where all workers are treated with respect and dignity, and receive just pay for their hard work, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, religion or immigration status.
We will educate and organize low-wage workers to build power and capacity to develop community-oriented solutions to address the growing problem of wage theft and other workplace abuses, and its root causes. By uniting workers. families, young people, interfaith communities, community partners & organizations, and responsible business owners, we will work to promote and protect the human rights of all workers.
