Southwest Organizing Project

The SouthWest Organizing Project was founded in 1980 by young activists of color to empower our communities in the SouthWest to realize racial and gender equality and social and economic justice.  We seek to redefine power relationships by bringing together the collective action, talents, and resources of the people within our communities.  We work primarily in low-income communities of color to gain community control of our land and resources.
