The mission of WFP Solidarity Collective is to support peace, justice and sustainable economies in the Americas by changing US policies and corporate practices that contribute to poverty and oppression in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The Collective was founded by a collaborative group of former WFP national and international staff, board members, regional organizers and volunteers committed to a new vision of horizontal solidarity, both with our international partners and within our own internal organizing and governance.
We are currently engaged in a 6-8 month facilitated process to vision and formalize our ongoing model, leadership, and governance. The Collective's formation was inspired by the analysis and vision of Berta Cáceres, including the need for movements to inherently reflect the intertwining struggles against capitalism, racism, and patriarchy. Our work is led by the guiding principles of Emergent Strategy and the 2018 Workers' Statement. Current composition includes core members, supporters/advisors, and coalition partners.
