Our Story

San Diego is rich in its diversity, but not all who live here are able to reach their full potential because of policies that marginalize working-class families, people of color, immigrants and refugees.

Alliance San Diego is a community organization whose mission is to build collective power to create an inclusive democracy. We believe that by working together to engage effectively in the civic process, we can make systemic change and shape a future that belongs to all of us. 

We build power by developing leaders, engaging communities, advocating for policies, protecting civil and human rights, and communicating strategically. We are driven by core values of inclusion, compassion, justice, collaboration, and integrity

Alliance San Diego (known formally as Equality Alliance of San Diego) was founded in 2007 to mobilize for change. To reshape the world so that it is more reflective of and responsive to our diverse communities. Since then, we have been mobilizing to create a San Diego where all people can achieve their full potential in an environment of harmony, safety, equality and justice.

On issues of shared interest and common concern, Alliance San Diego honors our promise of achieving greater impact through collective action. Every day we are fighting to create lasting change for this generation and all those that follow. We are tapping into our collective power to shape a better future for all of us.

We invite you to help us build the collective power we need to create an inclusive democracy. Learn about other ways to give to support our work.
