Migrants Organise

migrants and refugees acting for justice

Migrants Organise is a platform where refugees and migrants organise for power, dignity and justice. We develop leadership and open up spaces for relational, organised participation of migrants and refugees in public life.

From two decades work as the Migrant and Refugee Communities Forum, we know that migrants and refugees make a positive contribution to our country. Migration is fact of life, instead of resisting it – let’s organise it.

What We Do

We organise. We mobilise. We mentor. We train. We celebrate.

Speak Out

We speak out. We make our voices heard, and we take a stand on the issues that affect us.

Connect

We connect people. We act relationally to help people belong.

Build Common Ground

We bring diverse people together around shared issues, on a shared platform.

Grow Power

We grow power. We provide a platform for people to be powerful and develop skills, leadership, confidence and their connections.

Promote the Migrant Vote

Promote the Migrant Vote

Promote the Migrant Vote is a collaborative project to support migrants and BME groups to engage with the 2017 General Election by providing resources, information and a national framework for mobilisation. We want to ensure that the experiences of our members facing uncertainty, fear and isolation are on the national agenda at this election and that their interests are properly represented.

We have created an action kit to assist migrants, refugees and their supporters to mobilise their communities. It provides information on the electoral process, as well as ideas and suggestions for actions and events to encourage people to register and vote. All migrants and refugees, including those without eligibility to vote in these elections can use this guide to organise events and contribute to the democratic process. You can get further information and one to one support by contacting us.
