Workers are under attack. Black, brown, and transgender communities are targeted by police and prisons. Billions in tax dollars are wasted on a fear-based criminal justice system when we desperately need reinvestment in education, healthcare, and jobs.
Enlace is a people of color led organization that for 20 years has been building power in low-wage worker communities and winning victories.
Today, Enlace is launching and coordinating the Freedom Cities movement. #FreedomCities redefines what safety and freedom truly means for our communities. We dream of a city where our entire community can live freely with safety and in their full dignity. #FreedomCities has launched in NYC, and Enlace is bringing our innovative trainings to develop leadership of womxn and gender non-conforming organizers and workers in Portland.
Enlace's National Prison Divestment Campaign continues to build meaningful power for local communities. We recently bridged movements with #NoDAPL and BDS to end Portland city investments in prison profiteer Wells Fargo and Caterpillar. To ensure the long-term impact of our work, the Enlace Institute builds skills and leadership in communities that have been most impacted by injustices, including the Delfino Leadership Institute.
Whether $50 or $5000, your contribution will be invested directly into communities on the front lines of building a more just world.
Will you join us?

Freedom Cities means that I can go to work and not worry about the violence that comes with workplace deportation, not worry about sexual abuse by my boss. When I think about safety, I think about my family and this wholeness that I feel when I'm with them. If I could, I would be with my family more often–that would make me safe.

Security and safety are being able to wake up each morning knowing that my body is valued, my mind and heart are encouraged to speak, and that the future generations will be free.
