Human Mobility and Migration

Human Mobility and Migration

Providence, RI

AFSC-SENE works on two interwoven themes: peacebuilding and community justice.

Our peace work engages the people in southeastern New England to support the peaceful resolution of international conflicts. The program works to prevent and end military solutions to problems and supports changing the narrative towards building shared security. We also work for an end to U.S. support for the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands. At the local level we offer trainings in nonviolent direct action and support local efforts for food security.

Our community justice work resists the militarization of our communities by supporting alternatives to military service, advocating to end racial profiling, and campaigning to defund military spending and increase funding for programs that meet human needs. We work with immigrants and immigrant-allied groups in pushing for just, humane, and comprehensive immigration reform.

Cambridge Project Voice

Project Voice's purpose is to strengthen the voices of immigrant-led organizations in setting the national agenda for immigration policy and immigrants' rights, in order to foster a fuller integration of immigrants and refugees in their new communities. Project Voice combines local and national organizing, education, and outreach campaigns to achieve a strategic impact on key immigration and refugee issues, including legalization, abuse of authority, community relations, workers' rights, globalization, and other human rights issues.

Fresno, CA

Founded in 1998 as a project of the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), The Pan Valley Institute (PVI) creates a safe place for immigrants and refugees to learn from one another and build community. Inspired by the Highlander Research and Education Center in Tennessee, which served as an important training base for the civil rights movement of the mid-twentieth century, the Pan Valley Institute brings a diverse range of grassroots immigrant leaders together in cultural gatherings, leadership trainings, thematic workshops, fellowship programs, and residential retreats to increase immigrant participation and power across California’s Center Valley. Like the Highlander Center, PVI’s work is guided by the principles of popular education, participatory action research and cultural organizing.
