SOLIDARITY & RESILIENCE

COVID-19 Resources

As a network of Latin American immigrant-led, immigrant-serving organizations, Alianza Americas and its members have come together to address the needs and concerns of immigrant communities during the pandemic. 

Now is a time for bold ideas, not business as usual.  Alianza Americas calls for healthcare for everyone, and recognition of the value that essential workers are providing to all of us, including undocumented workers, with protection and support that includes everyone.  Ceasing immigration detention, releasing people from detention and halting deportations are common-sense steps to protect the health of immigrants and everyone else. At the same time, we will step up our vigilance to protect rights, strengthen democratic accountability, and promote justice in new and creative ways.

 

Resources include:

 

A constantly updated resources pages with trustworthy, curated information— in understandable formats, mostly in Spanish.  Several members have also worked hard to include information in indigenous languages.

Webinars and training sessions to keep our members and allies informed, and build capacity for connection and action  

Opportunities for action and advocacy that build a sense of shared purpose and solidarity, challenge us to re-shape policy, and make creative use of online connections to break through the isolation of quarantine.
