AFIRE is a grassroots community organization that works to build the capacity of Filipinx/a/os to organize on issues of social, racial, and economic justice that affect undocumented immigrants, domestic workers, seniors, and youth.
We believe in anchoring our work in the Filipinx/a/o principles of bayanihan (communal unity and cooperation), kapitbahayan (neighborhood care), and damayan (mutual aid).
We believe in creating programs that are grounded in popular education, and addressing issues through an intersectional lens to deepen our understanding of the unique experiences of our community.
We believe in maintaining diverse spaces for civic reflection that cultivate collective action and a shared vision for systems change.
We believe in supporting the leadership of people most affected by structural injustices, so they can lead movements toward freedom and liberation for all people.
