Building Community, crossing experiences

A WORLD WITH SPACE FOR MANY WORLDS 

 

A WORLD WITH SPACE FOR MANY WORLDS CILAC Freire has along history of building COMMUNITIES of people, ideas, and thoughts. CILAC Freire is a space where universal values of solidarity, friendship, tolerance, and inclusion are restored; while raising political awareness of the progressive movement.

In 1987, CILAC Freire was founded in Mexico, inspired by the solidarity movement in El Salvador and throughout Latin America. From its inception, CILAC Freire has sought to teach Spanish to foreigners and serve as a bridge that connects them to Latin Americans, encouraging participation in social movements. Through language, and culture education students develop an understanding of the reality of Mexico, strengthening relationships with one another and removing prejudices between them.

CILAC Freire strives to recognize the important and ongoing work of various organizations in Mexico. Listed here are the organizations with which they collaborate and would like to recognize for their support of the social and economic justice movement. Without their support, collaboration and contributions, it would be difficult for CILAC Freire to raise awareness about the reality of Mexico and Latin America.

CONGRATULATIONS TO EVERYONE AND MAY YOUR EXCELLENT WORK CONTINUE.
