What we do Inter Pares supports communities in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Canada to create sustainable livelihoods and healthy futures. We support people's struggles for self-determination and their efforts to challenge structural obstacles to achieving social justice, accompanying people in their efforts to hold their governments accountable and to promote democratic social and economic policies. Through advocacy and coalition-building, Inter Pares also links social action at home with social change work abroad, promoting relationships of mutual support among activists around the globe.

Inter Pares and our counterparts are currently working on the issues of migration, violence against women, peace and democracy, control over resources, health, food sovereignty, and economic justice. Inter Pares brings a holistic perspective to these concerns, however, recognizing the interrelations between them. The thread that connects our work is citizen participation - strengthening the capacity of people and communities, especially the most marginalized, to influence the social, economic, and political structures that affect their lives.
We also organize our work geographically, recognizing the regional influences and commonality of issues which affect our colleagues' lives. To learn about Inter Pares' programs in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Canada, please click on the appropriate link.
