Voces Mesoamericanas (‘Central American Voices’) is a non-governmental civic organization that works with migrant individuals, families, and community groups in Chiapas. They arrange forums for dialogue, reflection, and strategizing to promote the common interests of Central and North American societies. By supporting such organizational activities, they seek to increase civic participation and enhance transnational relations in the interest of supporting emigrant workers who wish to return to Chiapas.
These goals are promoted through the formation of transnational committees and the support of economic and employment initiatives. Much of the organizations work is divided into three areas:
1) Encouragement of local investment and expansion of transnational markets,
2) Civic participation, communication, and representaion of migrant culture,
3) Networking and alliances with migrant advocacy groups in Mexico, Central America, and the United States.
