Aliadxs is a decentralized network of allies committed to using their skills, privileges, and resources to support Make the Road’s members in the fight for an immigration system and an economy that recognize the full humanity of every single person. Aliadxs grew out of this new political moment: with the rise of racist, xenophobic and misogynistic politics, more New Yorkers are seeking organizing opportunities to support strategies and campaigns led by those most directly impacted. The role of Aliadxs includes mobilizing for rallies; adding strength to campaigns through strategic research, artistic support, and social media amplification; fundraising for MRNY; and building a network of compassion and support in New York and across the country.
