Desis Rising Up & Moving (DRUM) was founded in 2000 to build the power of South Asian and Indo-Caribbean low wage immigrant workers, youth, and families in New York City to win economic & educational justice and civil & immigrant rights.

Our organizing model involves five core elements:

  1. Base building- Daily outreach in schools, workplaces, communities
  2. Leadership Development - Monthly workshops, trainings, and Leadership Institutes to build the skills of our members in policy change campaigns and social justice issues.
  3. Policy Campaigns - Running short and long term campaigns to reform policies at the city, state, federal, and international levels on issues ranging from immigration, civil rights, education, and labor rights.
  4. Alliance Building - Forging collaborations with diverse communities and sectors to build strong social justice movements for change.
  5. Institution Building - Building democratic and mass participatory spaces for people otherwise marginalized from shaping public policy.
