Pares en Accion-Reaccion Contra la Exclusion Social (PARCES) (Peers in Action-Reaction Against Social Exclusion)

They seek to build spaces that break the norm, spaces where they feel safe to build from what moves us the most inside, where they feel safe to transform their multiple identities in order to make visible that all must be equally valid. At the beginning they call theirselves 'Parces Collective'. Then, when they realized that the five of them were not going to achieve everything they were imagining, they decided to grow their team. They were ... 10? Yes, 10. Now ... Are they constituted? Alejo and Tati What are the implications of doing that? Benefits, disadvantages?   They were established on December 12, 2013. They established theirselves as a non-governmental organization so they went from being a collective to an NGO. From January they begin to organize theirselves better, deciding roles, ways of working, forms of communication, decisions ... decisions that change and will continue to change with experience and growth. Now they are officially 15 although counting volunteers and some crazy people who support them a lot they are like 20. PARCES acts and reacts against discrimination, exclusion, rejection, abuse and violation and denial of rights to individuals and communities.
