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

The Alianza Team Presents:
Together, we’ll build stronger families, stronger communities, and a stronger nation.
In July, Alianza Americas became part of the ‘Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition.’ The coalition is comprised of 12 partner organizations that work throughout the United States to provide services to immigrants, refugees, and asylees, including legal representation, advocacy, and awareness campaigns. Full list of coalition members here.
The creator of Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda kicked off a Prizeo campaign and created a music video to support the coalition with the #HAM4All Challenge by calling on people to donate and create their own videos of their favorite Hamilton Songs. That promotion has ended but more than 51,000 people participated, and the coalition will be joining forces for National Advocacy Days in September 2017 as well. Be sure to check out the video Alianza America staff created as part of the #Ham4All above..

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.
