The Harbor Institute is dedicated to advancing a progressive immigrant and economic justice agenda and political transformation throughout Orange County via strategic movement building, research and policy development, and advocacy. We serve as a resource for powerbuilding organizations, grassroots leaders, and policymakers who are committed to long-term, county-wide structural transformations that advance justice and solidarity among working-class immigrant and refugee communities.
We engage in multimethod, community-oriented research to support movement organizing across Orange County.
We strategize and collaborate with movement organizers throughout the region to achieve long-term, structural transformations that uplift working-class, immigrant communities.
We work alongside movement organizations to foster progressive narratives and develop co-governing structures that provide strong foundations for truly transformative change across the county.
