The Latin American Coalition (La Coalición), is one of the oldest pro-immigrant non-profit organizations in Charlotte. La Coalición builds a community of Latin Americans, immigrants, and allies while promoting full and equal participation of all people in the civic, economic, and cultural life of North Carolina through education, celebration, and advocacy. During the past 30 years, they have seen the immigrant community bloom and create great solutions that not only bridge cultures, but teach us to appreciate one other.
If anyone can help us find four new Instagram accounts to follow, it’s La Coalición. So, without further ado, here are four accounts they recommend:
“Because they are warriors, fighting for families that are going through deportation proceedings.” – La Coalición
“We have worked with Carlotan Talents for years celebrating Latin America in Charlotte!” – La Coalición
“Because we are thankful for initiatives that truly support immigrant interactions. And, that’s the point of Naturalize CLT.” – La Coalición
“We appreciate the work Alianza is doing to maintain our youth free of drugs.” – La Coalición
