Who We Are
Colectivo Flatlander helps build a stronger popular movement for social, economic and racial justice in the South and Southwest by working with communities and organizations who are engaged in these struggles. We were founded in 2002 by immigrant and Chicano organizers who sought to provide grassroots immigrant rights groups and organizers with tools, political analysis, training opportunities and spaces for dialogue that modeled popular education principles. Colectivo Flatlander was one of the few organizations that conducted our work entirely in Spanish. We presently work in a completely bilingual manner in both Spanish and English as well as across different movements. Since then, we have worked with hundreds of organizers and more than 30 organizations on a local, national, and international level.
