After several years of assisting the Latinx community in South Philly, their space at 1537 South 6th Street will soon become another coffee shop.
Juntos, who place blame for the sudden need to relocate squarely in the lap of gentrification, have since launched a GoFundMe campaign with the hopes of raising enough money to secure another space in the neighborhood.
Juntos is a community-led, Latinx immigrant organization in South Philadelphia fighting for our human rights as workers, parents, youth, and immigrants. We believe that every human being has the right to a quality education and the freedom to live with dignity regardless of immigration status.
Juntos combines leadership development, community organizing, and focused collaborations with other community-based and advocacy organizations to build the power of our community members so they may be active agents of change and work against their own oppression. – vamosjuntos.org
