Good Jobs, Good Neighbors
Thriving Communities Across Borders
This jobs/economic justice tour will focus on the state of good jobs and the lack of living and sustainable wages to support workers both here in the U.S. and abroad in places like Mexico and Central America. It will look at the question of jobs from both a local and transnational perspective as well as shine a light on a problem that has displaced thousands of workers in our hemisphere, the movement and scarcity of jobs. What do we mean by good jobs? What can we – workers, advocates, policy-makers, businesses, and other stakeholders – do to be better neighbors to each other as we share a common struggle? How can we work together across borders to create opportunities for everyone?
SAVE THE DATE: Sep 19-26

SOMOS We Are
Reclaiming Our Humanity
SOMOS/WE ARE is a collaborative initiative developed by Alianza Americas & its members and allies, using art, music, video, & other cultural expressions to tell the true stories of immigrants and our communities. SOMOS/WE ARE provides a powerful counter-narrative to the negative and misguided perception of immigrants that has come to dominate public discourse and policy making, thereby harming our communities, not just in the U.S., but also in other countries around the world, including our own countries of origin.

10 Year Anniversary
In early 2014, a small group of immigrant leaders gathered in Washington, DC with a shoestring budget and a big dream: to create a national network that could lift up the voices of the Latin American and Caribbean community. In November of 2014, Alianza Americas celebrated its 10 Year Anniversary. Today, Alianza Americas 45 organizational members represent more than 100,000 families across 12 states in the United States.
