The Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights (GLAHR) educates, organizes and trains the Latino community in Georgia to defend and promote their civil and human rights.

GLAHR relies on base-building methods to organize and educate Latino immigrants about their rights, defense strategies, and anti-immigrant legislation and practices. GLAHR has developed eighteen comités populares—local committees designed to raise the political consciousness of the Latino community. In these comités populares, Latinos receive leadership training, learn to carry out acts of civil disobedience, and build networks of support and shared experiences. GLAHR also mobilizes Latinos to participate in national campaigns and strikes for immigration reform, including the national strike on the Day of Non-Compliance in 2011. As a current member of the Georgia Not 1 More Campaign, GLAHR organizes marches, rallies, and acts of civil disobedience to campaign for an end to all deportations of undocumented immigrants, along with a coalition of immigrant, labor, economic justice, women’s rights, and LGBT advocacy groups.
