Equity for Children

policy makers, practitioners, and other agents of social movements and civil society; shining a light on new and innovative practices and theories; translating complex theories and research into applicable tools for practitioners; and networking with
activist and advocacy groups.
Observatory on Latin America
The Observatory on Latin America organizes its work around three major goals: to improve academic and public understanding by observing and studying the processes of political and economic change underway in Latin America; to foster a public dialogue
between the United States and Latin America about the challenges of building social democracy in a globalized world; and to collaborate with Latin American institutions to further these objectives within countries across the Hemisphere by linking
and mobilizing ideas and institutions.
