Women in Transition is a grassroots organization operating within an economic justice framework. We use the language of human rights to address the issue of poverty in our community. We believe in the ideas enshrined in the UN Declaration of Human Rights. We pursue educational activities to dismantle classism, raise awareness about poverty, and teach our members to become their own advocates. We work to help provide direct support to our members and do organizing work to push for policies that will alleviate poverty.
