Witness for Peace National – Witness for Peace operates as a regional arm of Witness for Peace National. We work together with the National office to coordinate campaigns and delegations. Our regional focus allows us to focus on concerns specific to our area and connect more directly with supporters. Like Witness for Peace Southeast, the National office is a politically independent, nationwide grassroots organization of people committed to nonviolence and led by faith and conscience. WFP’s mission is to support peace, justice and sustainable economies in the Americas by changing U.S. policies and corporate practices that contribute to poverty and oppression in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Adelante Coalition: “Adelante focuses on education issues affecting Latino and migrant students and their families in North Carolina. The coalition is a collaboration among nonprofit organizations that focus on advocacy and public policy, community organizing, and grassroots support. We are working to ensure that North Carolina has a high-quality K-12 and post-secondary public education system where students will succeed and excel without regard to race, ethnicity, national origin, language, culture, socioeconomic or immigration status.” The adelante coalition works to make North Carolina a more welcoming and supportive environment for Latino families.
We are also a member of the Triangle Unity May Day Coalition, a group of organizations that collectively strives for better worker’s rights.
