Aliadxs is a decentralized network of allies committed to using their skills, privilege, and resources to support Make the Road’s members. Growing out of this new resistance moment with the rise of racist, xenophobic and misogynistic politics, the Aliadxs network aims to connect New Yorkers seeking organizing opportunities with campaigns and strategies led by those most directly impacted.
