Our Stories: Empowerment Through Community

Finding My Voice and Potential

“When I first started SIM in 2020, I had only known organizing in the context of activism or through small stints of volunteering. I came in ready to learn and to re-enter into organizing work that focuses greatly on immigration, and met much more than that. I was thrust into the world of youth leadership, and for the first time; in a long time, I felt seen, heard, and welcomed. I could see and feel how the work that I was doing was directly formed from my family, friends, and my experience. Through SIM I learned to love and embrace organizing , so much so, that I became a full time organizer. Now, SIM is family, a safe space and a friend space. The relationships I have formed through SIM will be long standing ones!”
