ARM is a grassroots movement created by young activists in Lebanon, in collaboration with migrant community leaders. Together they work on documenting, investigating, exposing and fighting racist practices and mentalities in Lebanon, through various initiatives and campaigns.

Their current efforts are mainly targeted towards racism, and other discriminatory and exploitative practices, against migrant workers. There are over 200,000 migrant workers in Lebanon. For the most part, they are suffering from discriminatory labor laws and practices, such as the sponsorship system, the exclusion of domestic work from labor laws, the lack of monitoring and accountability in recruitment agencies, arbitrary detention, and discriminatory policies imposed in restaurants, banks, airlines, public transportation, parks, tourist resorts and more.
