Our Model of Organizing​

Our Model of Organizing

At Stories Inspiring Movements (SIM), we believe in the power of community-driven change. Our model of organizing is grounded in three core principles: grassroots leadership, collective action, and transformative storytelling.

Grassroots Leadership

We prioritize the voices and experiences of immigrant youth and their families. By fostering a supportive environment, we cultivate the potential of our community members, empowering them to step up as leaders and advocates for their rights and aspirations.

Collective Action

We recognize that change happens when we work together. Our approach involves collaborating with community members, partner organizations, and allies to build a strong network. United in our mission, we create lasting impact through campaigns, events, and initiatives that promote equal opportunities for all.

Transformative Storytelling

Stories have the power to inspire, educate, and challenge perspectives. By sharing the unique experiences of our community, we humanize the struggles faced by immigrant youth and their families. Our storytelling initiatives aim to spark conversations, foster empathy, and drive systemic change.
