Speak Up

Conexión Américas envisions a Tennessee where Latinos, and all immigrants, are embraced as integral members of our community.

You can help us “Change the Conversation” and spread the message about the positive contributions immigrants make to our state’s economic, social and cultural vitality.

Be Heard

Engage Elected Officials

Conexión Américas also regularly responds to public policy issues affecting Latino families on the local, state and national levels.

Through active membership in the National Council of La Raza and the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition, as well as our participation in local initiatives such as the Coalition for Education About Immigration and Nashville for All of Us, Conexión Américas advocates for policies that support our mission of helping Latino families realize their aspirations for social and economic advancement by promoting their integration into the community.

One of the most important ways in which you can support the work of Conexión Américas and the families we serve is to be engaged in communicating with your elected officials to ensure that our state and country continue to be inclusive and welcoming places.

GIVE YOUR TIME

Buy Café Rumba Roast

As Conexión Américas supports the entrepreneurial spirit of Latino immigrants through our Negocio Próspero (Prosperous Business) program, we too are entrepreneurial in how we manage our nonprofit organization. We seek to diversify the financial sources that support our work to ensure the long-term sustainability of Conexión Américas. And that’s why we created Café Rumba Roast.

Your purchase of Café Rumba Roast will filter into your community by supporting Conexión Américas’ mission of helping Latino families in Middle Tennessee realize their aspirations for social and economic advancement. With your purchase of Café Rumba Roast, you are also ensuring Latin American farmers are paid a fair price for their organic coffee beans, which in turn allows them to better support their businesses and families.

Social entrepreneurship never tasted so good!
