Mission Statement

To educate, organize and unite low-income people to obtain their rights; to promote self-esteem in low-income people; to promote involvement in the electoral process, to educate the community as to its common interest in justice for poor people, to educate low-income people to fight oppression in all its manifestations.


Arise for Social Justice is a low-income rights, anti-oppression membership organization in western Massachusetts. Arise was started in 1985 by four women on Welfare who met around a kitchen table and decided to organize and advocate for their Rights. Since then Arise has broadened their mission to include all low-income and oppressed people. Our membership is made up of mostly the low-income people that they are designed to serve. Their membership, though, is not limited to low-income people. Instead there are also other members of the community of Springfield and it's surrounding areas involved. Some such are teachers, students, and business people as well. Even their donors are varied from professionals down to low-income people.
