The East Coast Coalition for Tolerance and Non-Discrimination (ECC)
Promoting Inclusion and Equity for Underprivileged Minorities
National origin discrimination, a key manifestation of social marginalization, involves discriminating individuals due to their origin from a certain part of the world, due to their ethnicity or accent, or their resemblance to a certain ethnic background. This form of discrimination is impacting social and judicial fields, both foreign and domestic.
Researches prove that national origin
discrimination affects everyone. Whether black, white, Asian, or Latino, this discrimination includes all races and genders. It is not limited to the United States but is a global issue. As time progresses and immigration issues become subject to more laws, national origin discrimination will get more prevalent in the judicial systems of the U.S. and also other countries.
To promote social justice for minorities in our society, for everyone deserves an equal chance at a good life.
To raise awareness against xenophobia by letting more to more people know that we are more alike than different and that xenophobia is unjust.
To present the solutions that defend the social equality for underprivileged minorities in legislative systems and society at large
Our Objectives and Projects:
To reach out to elected officials to voice the significance of immigrant inclusion for our society as a whole, advocating for policies that reflect legislative justice for all.
To organize social justice projects that target social marginalization. For example, the "Name Equality for Minorities" project, promotes social inclusion for people with non-western names.
To organize academic
salons that share and discuss first-hand information on the harm of national origin discrimination. To let victims know that you are not alone.
