Alianza Americas represents a critical voice on issues
that have an impact on the lives of immigrant families throughout the Americas.
Its forty-five organizational members represent more than 100,000 families across 12 states in the United States. Alianza Americas combines its deep community roots and highly respected transnational experience with its advocacy policy work to protect the dignity and promote the well-being of all people across the Americas.
The “Somos/We Are” initiative focuses on story-telling as a counter-narrative to the rhetoric of hate and demonization that has been promulgated about Latino immigrants and their families. By telling migrants stories through the arts and other mediums, we hope to harness a powerful tool while at the same time bringing to light the facts, and all of the positive contributions of the immigrant community.

“We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community… Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.”
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.
