Get educated, get involved and be a part of the solution

We can shape new narrative about Latin American immigrants in the US.

 

If we educate elected officials and the general public about the systemic causes that force thousands of people to flee their countries of origin, we can help drive better policies.

 

As Latin American immigrants in the US, we seek to improve living conditions for the most vulnerable population in our countries of origin.

A word from our Executive Director

“Going backwards is not an option, all is not lost,” says Oscar Chacón, in this message to Alianza Americas’ membership, in light of the latest development related to immigration reform and the future of the “Build Back Better” bill.

 

Our executive director delves into some events such as the Senate parliamentarian’s ruling on December 16 against including modest immigration reforms in the “Build Back Better” initiative, which would have provided work permits to a significant number of immigrants who have been residing in the United States for many years; Senator Joe Manchin’s statement yesterday, Sunday, December 19, on his decision not to vote in favor of the Build Back Better bill; momentous events in the region such as the election results in Honduras and Chile; and some avenues on which we must continue to move forward, work and lobby in 2022.
