What We Do
The only way to build sustainable grassroots power in low-income areas is by developing strong local leaders. Through our organizing, we recruit volunteers and give them the skills they need to be activists in their community.
Through our voter registration, education, and get-out-the-vote work, we dramatically increase voter turnout in low-income communities.
To hold elected officials accountable to the needs of struggling working families, we organize mass call-ins, letter-writing campaigns, delegation visits with legislators and public accountability sessions on our priority issues each year.
For low-income people to influence elected officials and have an impact on public policy, we believe it’s essential to unite them in local and statewide coalitions with unions, social service agencies and community groups.
Additionally, the Student Immigrant Movement of Massachusetts is a fiscally sponsored project of Neighbor to Neighbor Massachusetts Education Fund.
