Hearts Across the Americas

Mobilizing Hearts Across the Americas to Defend Migrant Families

Alianza Americas

Migrant Communities

Our story

 

The crisis affecting Central American families is bigger than our borders. It transcends differences of language, of country of origin, of geography. It unites us in a way that only the most dire of emergencies can. It is a crisis of humanity, one that requires a basic, human response: Heart.

For decades, Alianza Americas has worked across borders to fight injustice, oppression, and inequality. And as the crisis facing migrant families, children, and marginalized people across the Americas grows, the urgency and immediacy of our work also grows. Join us in putting our “hearts”–resources, action, compassion and resistance–on the ground, across borders to protect migrant families and defend their human rights.

 

How we will put your donations in action:

#HeartsAcrosstheAmericas will work across borders to protect and defend migrant families in their home countries, along the migration route, and in the United States. The effort builds on Alianza Americas’ 15 years of experience in transnational advocacy and organizing to advance justice, dignity and human rights across the Americas.-

  • In Central America: Coordinated advocacy, resources, and partnerships to end the systemic violence, impunity, and inequality driving families from their homes.
  • In Mexico: Direct financial support to shelters housing migrant families and mobilization of legal experts to ensure that families understand their rights to seek asylum.
  • In the United States: Networked legal services and know-your-rights trainings for migrant families and migrant-led organizing around legislation that protects families across borders.

Add your “heart” to the mobilization of #HeartsAcrosstheAmericas. Your donation will support Alianza Americas’ transnational effort to build safety, support and protections migrant families across borders.

 

Why it matters:

Central American families and migrant communities are in acute crisis. The systemic poverty, corruption and violence that plagues countries like Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua has been exacerbated by decades of short-sighted, punitive economic and immigration policies from the United States. And now, the abject lack of basic regard for humane treatment with which the current administration has attacked immigrant and refugee families puts them at immediate risk. The resurgence of white supremacy, rising xenophobia, and nationalism is reaching across borders, adding to this toxic mix across the Americas.

Families face death if they stay home; persecution and separation if they flee.

 

Potential Challenges:

Well-intentioned, short-term responses fail to capture the deeply historic and transnational dimensions of the challenge at hand. While there is no silver bullet to tackling a situation as complex as the one facing Central American migrants, work toward a solution must include all stakeholders across the U.S.-Central America migration corridor.

In defending migrant families, we seek support from concerned people across the Americas. Share your city, state, and country when you make a contribution to light up our map of #HeartsAcrosstheAmericas.
