Latino Voices
Twin Cities

Latino Voices is a joint program of “The Family Partnership” (south Minneapolis collaborator of “La Conexion de las Americas” which just dissolved but was the originator of the project) and “Interfaith Coalition on Immigration.” Latino Voices aims to build understanding of systematic forces that have caused the immigration crisis, through a combination of individual stories and fact-based information on U.S. policy and history. We are working to create an environment of tolerance and understanding in which a fair, humane immigration system can be implemented.
