Local Organizations

Community Justice Project - We are community lawyers. In our legal work we collaborate closely with community organizers and grassroots groups in low-income communities of color because we believe that a more democratic, more just and more equal society can only truly come about through grassroots organizing and social movement. We are a part of that social movement in South Florida and strive to support organizing through our varied and often innovative legal work.

Dream Defenders - The Dream Defenders is a Florida-based nonprofit social-justice group that advocates for equality for people of color, an end to police militarization, an end to gender discrimination, and widespread nonviolence and peace at home and abroad. The group organizes protest marches, art events, and alternative history lessons, among many other happenings.

Florida Immigrant Coalition - A statewide confederation of 65 groups, the Immigrant Coalition is one of the the state's largest Latin American immigrant-advocacy organizations. The group advocates for not only immigration-law reform but also rights for undocumented workers, farmworkers, and immigrant students.

Power U Center for Social Change - Miami's PowerU seeks to develop "the leadership of black and brown youth and black women in South Florida" to end systemic oppression and racism.

The Miami-Dade Women's Fund - The Women's Fund, one of the largest women's rights organizations in Miami, advocates for economic security and health care for women. The group also awards grants to smaller groups that help underserved women across the Miami-Dade.

Miami Bridge - The organization is Miami-Dade's only 24-hour shelter for abandoned or abused kids ages 10 to 17. The shelter provides for more than 500 children and teens each year.

Engage Miami - Founded by a group of young local laywers, Engage Miami aims to get more young people involved in politics — especially the local kind that actually affects most people day-to-day. They're trying to convince Millennials that they should care about things like zoning board hearings and lobbyist transparency.

Urban Paradise Guild - What the South Florida Wildlands Association does for the Glades, the Guild does for the City of Miami. The UPG and its members are dedicated to bringing back a sense of "natural habitat" to Miami.

Food Not Bombs - The mission of Food Not Bombs is to recover and share free vegan or vegetarian food with the public without restriction to protest war, poverty, and the destruction of the environment.

Miami Homes for All - We believe that everyone in Miami deserves to lead a dignified, healthy, and vibrant life. That includes everyone from those struggling to make ends meet to those experiencing homelessness.
