Program Area

Puente Human Rights Movement is a grassroots migrant justice organization that works to develop, educate, and empower migrant communities. It acts as fiscal sponsor to the Mijente Support Committee, a digital and grassroots hub founded in 2015 for organizing and movement building among Latinx and Chicanx.

Mijente exists to serve as a vehicle to build consciousness and spark action in the Latino community. It builds campaigns that advance human rights and re-grants to local organizations across the country to advance those campaigns. It does so through an online digital platform, as well as through in-person convenings in cities and towns across the country.
