Associativism is an important way for social groups to reach greater expression, fight for their rights and organize themselves in favour of common goals in the fight for equal opportunities. In the case of immigrant citizens, it is also a way to reaffirm ethno-cultural belongings and also to promote integration in the host country. Associations are created based on values such as participation, the fight for social justice and cooperation between members, promoting awareness, information, participation and activism activities to guarantee rights and access.
