Alianza Americas Works to create an inclusive, equitable and sustainable way of life for Latinx immigrant communities in the United States and across the Americas. We work transnationally with community leaders, government officials, union leaders, allied organizations and faith-based communities, to create a more dignified and just way of life for all people living in the Americas.
We work to elevate migrants’ voices in spaces where public policies are discussed and decided, so that their needs and perspectives are incorporated. We bring to the table a transnational vision, because we understand that this is a necessary perspective to confront the challenges that we face as migrants in our countries of origin and in the communities that welcome us.
This year we are celebrating sixteen years of existence and we are convening our Leadership Assembly virtually. We designed a program that includes four critical analysis sessions open to the public, in which we hope to discuss with our membership and allies how to build and strengthen our Power and Solidarity for Transformation. Afterwards, we will have the regular sessions of our biennial Assembly, reserved for our members in which we will evaluate the work carried out and establish future programmatic lines.
We are in a particularly challenging moment in the political, social and economic life across the world. During the convening spaces that we have programmed, we will foster discussion and reflection spaces on the situation that we are living and the challenges that we are confronting. Systemic racism and White supremacy threats, the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic recession convoke us to build collectively Power and Solidarity for Transformation.
