Why Does NACLA Matter to You?


“Latin America is facing very difficult times. What happens in the colossus of the North, worrisome enough, cannot fail to have an enormous impact. In the challenging times ahead, NACLA’s contributions are sure to continue be of great significance for those who seek a better world.”—Noam Chomsky

In our 50th anniversary issue, we’ve collected testimonies from some of our most loyal and ongoing supporters, including Noam Chomsky, quoted above, as well as NPR’s María Hinojosa, acclaimed Mexican writer Alma Guillermoprieto, and more!

But we want to hear from you! In honor of our 50th anniversary, we will showcase a variety of testimonials like the one above on our website, www.nacla.org, that answer the question: what does NACLA mean to you? Email us your reflections at info@nacla.org.

If you want to support NACLA’s work, there’s no better time to do so than now. If you donate between now and the end of the year, we’ll include a complimentary copy of our 50th anniversary issue for those giving $150 or more.

If you’ve already given, or if you support NACLA through attending our events, circulating our work on social media, or word-of-mouth, or aren’t able to give, we are also grateful to you.

En solidaridad,
