Solidary Wheels is a non-profit association made up of a group of independent volunteers who share a feeling of non-resignation in the face of European border policies and the constant violation of fundamental rights at these borders.
We established ourselves as an association in June 2019, although prior to this union we were independently active both in our cities and countries of origin, and around many borders of the European Union, promoting a dignified life for people who migrate to Europe.
In January 2020 we began our work in Melilla, where we carried out our project in person. Since then, the project has been modelled on the perceived needs and the knowledge and learning of each of the people who collaborate in it.
We believe in a project based on the power of the union, in which the opinion of each one counts and in creating stable structures that avoid its collapse in the absence of any one member. For this reason, we are a non-hierarchical team, based on transparent communication and on the collaboration and contribution of all those people who want to contribute to it.
We are a predominantly women's group and work from a feminist perspective, with the firm principle of promoting the empowerment of each and every one of us through teamwork and the creation of bonds.
