Latin American Integration Center was founded in 1992 by Latin American immigrants to promote participatory democracy, and the exercise and protection of human and civil rights of immigrant communities in New York City through education, grassroots advocacy, community organizing, and support services.

Make the Road by Walking promotes economic justice, equity and opportunity for all New Yorkers through community and electoral organizing, strategic policy advocacy, leadership development, youth and adult education, and high quality legal and support services.

Together, we will build on our proven successes and create a new citywide organization that combines:

  • democratic accountability to low-income people,
  • an innovative mix of strategies to confront inequality
    and economic injustice, and
  • deep and active community roots.

Merging organizations will promote justice, equality
and opportunity by:

  • building a new level of political power for low-income and recent immigrant New Yorkers;
  • expanding the scope and quality of services we provide in three of the fastest growing and most underserved boroughs of New York City;
  • promoting excellence by bringing together a diverse range
    of experiences and skill-sets in one organization;
  • organizing a broad network of people and institutions that will promote connection, community, information-sharing, and mutual support; and
  • creating economies of scale and increased organizational efficiency.

Together, we will confront poverty and inequality in new ways, and with more intensity than ever before. We hope you will join us!
