Mission: The stated purpose of swop is to empower the disenfranchised in the southwest to realize racial and gender equality, and social and economic justice.

Programs: In fiscal year 2012, accomplishments of the southwest organizing project included a full year of data collected from a community based air monitoring program that included residents in mesquite, nm, and the san jose neighborhood of albuquerque; successful implementation of a summer youth internship program; the launch of our second year of feed the hood farms, a micro-farming project; and a get out the vote campaign to engage our constituents in our democracy. We also engaged our members in a broad range of public activities designed to build their leadership to affect change that benefits their communities.
