AJC Atlanta has an extended history of cooperation with Latino groups in the metro area, lobbying for immigration reform through our Bridging America Project, and for voting rights, better schools, and other issues important to the Latino community. We maintain close relationships with the consulates of several Latin American states in Atlanta, including Mexico, Guatemala, and Brazil, among many others. Lastly, AJC has a long-standing partnership with Georgia’s most powerful Hispanic political organization, GALEO, (the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials).
On August 2, 2016, we hosted our 4th annual Charla & Challah event with GALEO. This was a great opportunity to discuss together the important links that bind our two communities and break bread with one another. Featured speakers include: Richard Foltin, AJC Director of National and Legislative Affairs, The Honorable Dax Lopez, State Court Judge of Dekalb County, and Mariela Romero, Director of Community Affairs at Univsion.
