In 2005, we launched TIGRA: Transnational Institute for Grassroots Research and Action as a movement center for organizing to leverage the economic power of the globally displaced. Today, in response to a more uncertain and in many ways harsher environment for those on the margins, we re-commit to vigorously pursuing our deep belief in justice, solidarity, and the transformative agency of collective action.
We bring you in-a(d)vance: a forward investment in strengthening movements
We will continue to be a movement center for organizing to advance racial and economic justice in a globalized world. We will invest our time and resources in investing in the people that do the hard work of improving conditions for the displaced and attacked for who they are. We will invest in nurturing strategic campaigns and projects that build unlikely alliances and cut new ways of doing the work. We will invest in making sure that the lived experience of regular folks who live in disinvested communities, whether they’ve been there for generations or just arrived from making the dangerous trek across borders, guide the strategies and policies we fight for.
