The Block, New Face of Resistance in Georgia

The Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights (GLAHR) is a Mijente hub organization, and we are proud to support GLAHR in their latest initiative, The Block. Through The Block, GLAHR works with and organizes Latinx youth across Georgia in rural and urban communities. This initiative continues the developed work of GLAHR by providing political consciousness and transformative work within the Latinx community for a collective space. GLAHR strives to develop the fight for immigrant rights and fortify la cultura del voto in the state of Georgia through grassroots organizing. The Block is an intersectional space for Latinx youth that upholds values that allows us to be aware and combat the status-quo, beginning with ourselves.

Earlier this summer, 30 youth from Tifton, GA and the surrounding area were gathered at The Block’s Summer Bootcamp, where they learned about the immigrant rights movement and GLAHR through popular education. They participated in dynamic activities and workshops ranging from lessons about teamwork.

This move highlights one of GLAHR’s most significant commitments to reach Latinos in all parts of the states by initiating The Block in the Deep South of the state, with more places to follow.

GLAHR is opening up to all youth within the community to feel safe and at home, to grow, heal, work, learn our roots, and include all our voices as we step into The Block.
