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.
Telemundo covers Somos We Are: National Art Contest
“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.
