About us

Migrants Organise provides a platform for refugees and migrants to organise for power, dignity and justice to enable meaningful inclusion and integration. We combine advice and support for individuals affected by the hostile environment immigration policies with community organising, advocacy, research and campaigning to help dismantle structural racism.

Our big vision is an inclusive and welcoming society with a fair immigration system based on principles of dignity, justice, welcome and action. Our mission is to create a platform with migrants and refugees and our allies to act together for justice and dignity. We will build a movement that delivers change.

We translate this into action by:

Connecting with each other and allies who share our values in an intentional and relational way

Building common ground and work strategically, organising and mobilising, building alliances and working in solidarity on local and national policy level, tackling diverse and multiple issues of concern

Growing our power, to share knowledge and resources and work to build a coherent, organised, inclusive and strategic movement for change. We mentor, train, develop leadership and platform 
people with lived experience of exclusion and destitution in a meaningful and dignified manner

Speaking out and disrupting normalization of dehumanizing narratives and policies by opening up spaces for a new narrative rooted in migrant experience and demands for justice

Our model of organising emerged from nearly three decades of working on all aspects of migration experience in Britain and our participation in the struggle to preserve rights and dignity in an increasingly hostile environment.
