The development of comites populares (people’s committees) is one of GLAHR’s principle methods for raising the political consciousness of Latino immigrants and building organized Latino communities across Georgia. These comites populares are grassroots groups that educate and organize Latino immigrants to defend and advance their civil and human rights, and that develop leaders within the community to advocate for social justice.

In addition to learning about anti-immigrant legislation and practices within the comites, Latinos also learn self-defense strategies and how to engage in political activism and acts of civil disobedience to advocate for civil rights and immigration reform. Especially important, community members build networks of support and shared experiences through the comites populares—providing the most marginalized members with a sense of community and access to crucial information about the national and local immigration scene.
