Southwest Organzing Project

SWOP serves immigrant families on the Southwest Side. We encourage a safe space where the dignity of immigrants is respected. SWOP works to give immigrants the opportunity to connect with people from the community and the chance to exercise their collective power and shared ability to act.

SWOP has been working for a path to citizenship for all immigrants since its foundation in 1996. SWOP has been active and visible throughout the years, participating in marches and demonstrations against anti-immigrant laws that pose a danger to our community. SWOP has been a key actor in a range of successful local, statewide, and national campaigns on behalf of immigrant families.
