Since its inception in 1990 the Coalición Latinoamericana - the Latin American Coalition - has stood for immigrant integration in a remarkable way.
Partnering with Latino families to create access, opportunity and voice, while at the same time making spaces for others to learn about and connect with their community.
We are a steadfast and vocal advocate for unity and dialogue between diverse populations to counteract the cultural backlash and friction brought about by the dramatic demographic shifts in the region.
La Coalición envisions a diverse and vibrant North Carolina which embraces, supports, and respects people of all cultures and backgrounds.
La Coalición is an immigrant rights organization that is pioneering a model for 21st century democracy building and inclusive community engagement in North Carolina – a region that has never before experienced such dramatic demographic shifts.
We have developed a multifaceted approach to promote justice and equity called Social Service to Social Action, a strategy that traces an intentional path through direct service intervention, integration support, alliance building, institution and systems change – all building toward meaningful culture and policy change.
Through Social Service to Social Action we seek to:
Address the root causes of structural exclusion.
and promote constructive solutions that support inclusive and equitable policies & practices,
Support Grassroot Mobilization
and engage the traditionally disenfranchised to be advocates for themselves and their families
– with the usual and uncommon allies – to increase our collective understanding of and our capacity to address the social justice issues in our world.
Our fiscal year runs July 1-June 30 and the agency operating budget is prepared annually.
