What We Do
SEACA members develop their own strategies to build power and organize their communities. They do this by organizing community forums, educational activities, and developing their own campaigns for social justice.
To create social change, our members must believe in the power of their own voices. We provide training, mentorship and educational resources to create change in themselves, their schools and their communities.
Connecting different generations together has been a long-term goal of SEACA’s community health classes. We want to tap into the vast cooking and gardening experiences of the older generations in the community.
Your support makes our work possible!
Towards achieving our mission and vision, SEACA uses the following methods:
Community members understand and have the capacity to create change in their own communities. Community organizing is empowering our members and giving them the tools to change power relations that often exclude community members.
Most often, large-scale decisions in our neighborhoods, schools and health care settings are made without community insight. Advocacy will be empowering community members to influence existing power structures including government institutions that create public policy and allocate public resources.
We address community building through building lasting relationships to strengthen our communities. Relationship building includes sharing our stories and having space and time for fun and shared experiences.
