Advocacy Opportunities

Gary 009

CRLN members work to convince their legislators to create U.S. policies that work for peace and justice in our hemisphere.  By advocating on issues that directly affect our ally organizations working for social justice in Latin America, CRLN members model active, engaged civic responsibility and call our government to accountability for its policies.  Through our advocacy activities, CRLN members build democracy, both here and abroad.
