Pueblos de Lucha y Esperanza Twin Cities Metro

Pueblos’ mission, as a faith based organization that promotes Justice, Hope and Peace, is to take social responsibility and build a structure of community power, with discipline and awareness of the injustices that primarily affect immigrant people, committed to work hard until our voices are heard.

We work in leadership and mentoring training, public forums, informational meetings, and meetings with public officials. We face the challenges that are affecting our community at the local, state and federal levels. Moreover, we collectively promote civic participation.

We will work and look for local and national alliances that share our mission and vision to create bridges of struggle and hope. We are convinced that our organization is structured to serve our community and their interests and make our community stronger by fighting with hope.
