About: Initiated by the Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants (OCASI) and co-led by a core group of advisory committee members, the Alliance for Racialized, Refugee, and Im/migrant Women is a project exploring the need and feasibility of forming a cross-country coalition of organizations and individuals who share common priorities in making Canada a just and equitable society for racialized, refugee, and im/migrant women, girls, and gender-diverse people.


Their collective work is guided by anti-racist and anti-oppressive practices, intersectional feminist and decolonial principles. Central to these efforts is the recognition of indigenous sovereignty, and commitment to acting in solidarity with First Nations, Inuit, and Métis women, girls, and two-spirited peoples.
