We believe in collective organizing. Many of our chapters have grown out of work already being done in their respective communities. Rather than starting from scratch or trying to “compete” with existing organizations, World on My Shoulders partners with organizations that closely align with our goals and values. World on My Shoulders related work and activities happen in these communities and the independent community work of these organizations continues as well. That way, the national aims of World on My Shoulders are achieved, while still meeting the specific community needs outside of our own mission.
