The purpose of the tour is to inform and raise awareness about violence and insecurity in Central America and the ongoing exodus of young people, children and families from the region, particularly the countries of the Northern Triangle. This tour will travel through the Southeast and focus on the dangers women and children face along the migration route in their attempt to reach the U.S. as well as on Mexico’s role in this convoluted crisis and in providing humanitarian protection to these families. These events will consist of a series of informational and educational briefings, roundtable discussions and dialogues with our guest speaker. RSVP below.

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.
