Our History

Founded nearly 15 years ago, the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights (GLAHR) is a non-profit, community-based organization that educates, organizes, and empowers Latino immigrants across Georgia to defend and advance their civil and human rights. By educating and organizing Latino grassroots.  GLAHR has established a powerful network of informed leaders, engaged community members, and local committees that combat racial discrimination, economic injustice, and state-inflicted violence, including detentions, deportations, and police abuse. 

Established in 2001 by Adelina Nicholls and Theodoro Maus, former Mexican Consul General in Atlanta, GLAHR developed out of the Coordinating Council of Latino Community Members, an organization that supported the right of undocumented immigrants to obtain drivers licenses. Today, GLAHR has become the largest Latino grassroots organization in Georgia as a result of its efforts to organize Latinos to defend and campaign for their rights and human dignity and organizes and educates Latino immigrants around civil and human rights, community defense, and against ill legislation.

GLAHR has developed eighteen comités populares—local committees designed to raise the political consciousness of the Latino community. 

GLAHR also mobilizes Latinos to participate in national campaigns and events for immigration reform, including the statewide mobilization and the Day of Non-Compliance in 2011. As a member of Georgia Not 1 More Campaign, GLAHR organizes marches, rallies, and campaign for an end to all deportations of undocumented immigrants, along with a coalition of immigrant, labor, economic justice, women’s rights, and LGBT advocacy groups.

Additionally, GLAHR offers a “hotline” that provides Latino immigrants and their families, in the event that they are mistreated, abused, or detained, with information and referrals. Each week, the hotlines receive anywhere from fifty to one hundred calls, allowing GLAHR to assist Latinos as they face abuse from employers, police officers, immigration agents, or in detention centers. 

GLAHR also hosts a digital daily radio program, airing Monday through Friday in the Atlanta Metro Area, to discuss important news, events, and activities

GLAHR additionally facilitates meetings between immigrant communities and local law enforcement—to raise the awareness of abuses, racial profile, harassment, and local  collaboration with federal agencies.

GLAHR is dedicated to forging meaningful local, state, and national alliances to build a strong social justice movement. Among the organizations and social justice groups with which GLAHR collaborates are Ga Detention Watch, Project South, Southerners on New Ground (SONG), Women on the Rise, Southern Poverty Law Center, Mijente, Just Future Laws, and others.
