    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Latin America Working Group (LAWG) conducts targeted advocacy and public education campaigns on U.S. policy toward Latin America from a human rights perspective. Under this project, LAWG will work with U.S. and Mexican civil society organizations to encourage the U.S. and Mexican governments to take concrete steps to protect both citizens and migrants and address impunity for abuses by criminal or government elements. Activities will contribute to strengthening the rule of law and migrant rights in Mexico.

The MacArthur Foundation awarded Latin America Working Group Education Fund $300,000 between 1978 and 2016.
