Who We Are
“Saligan” means that which is fundamental and basic. SALIGAN works with and represents the basic and marginalized sectors in the Philippines, on whom rests the attainment of justice and social change in the country. It has operations throughout the country through its offices in Metro Manila, the Bicol region, and Mindanao.

What We Do
SALIGAN continues to influence pro-labor amendments to the Labor Code, engages in the discussion of public sector union issues, and addresses migrant workers’ concerns. We also address issues of security of tenure, the right to living wage and speedy labor justice, the welfare of women workers and child labor.
SALIGAN handles cases of victims of gender-based violence and advocate for the enactment of laws and issuance of policies addressing women’s issues towards gender equality. We also have women paralegals than assist litigants in the courtroom and other concerns in their communities. Gender issues are mainstreamed in all of SALIGAN’s programs and activities.
