Latin America Program
The Latin America Program addresses rights and governance issues in Latin America and the Caribbean through grant making, network building, and collaboration with partners.
We focus on supporting Latin American and Caribbean efforts to defend democracy and increase governmental transparency, protect minority rights, reduce homicides, and reform drug policy.
Within the broader network of the Open Society Foundations, the program seeks to share its understanding of Latin America’s political context by facilitating contacts, brokering relationships, and identifying strategic opportunities.
In addition to supporting strategic regional initiatives on our issues, our strategy includes a focus on three priority countries: Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico.
We also work closely with the Fondation Connaissance et Liberté (FOKAL) in Haiti.
The Latin America Program team is based in Bogotá, Mexico City, New York City, Rio de Janeiro, and Washington, D.C.
