We dream of a society where democratic cohabitation, social justice and equal civic participation will be self-evident values.
A society where everyone is expressing themselves freely, collectively and publicly, to cooperate and cooperate peacefully, regardless of race, origin, color, gender or religious beliefs.
A society that welcomes diversity as a source of growth and progress.
A civil society


Our main aim is to contribute to the difficult and long process of integration of migrants
In the Greek society, enhancing the involvement of migrants themselves and also enhancing their collective and individual responsibility.

Towards this direction, our individual objectives are:

Defending the rights of migrants and their equal social integration

Strengthening and educating migrant communities, cooperation and solidarity with each other and with other organizations

Improve immigration policies by collective public expression and their participation in the processes of dialogue and decision-making on issues that concern them.

Combating racism and xenophobia in the Greek society.
