The St. Louis Inter-Faith Committee on Latin America (IFCLA) is a non-profit organization founded in 1982 with a mission to accompany the people of Latin America in their struggles for human rights and social justice.
We work to foster a sense of community both locally and across international borders, building bridges between cultures and faith traditions, through educational programs and networking with organizations and faith-based groups in the region.
We advocate and do direct action, provide material aid and accompaniment of the poor and marginalized of Latin America, and encourage immersion experiences.
We educate and advocate in the US for a change in US policies which affect immigration, economic justice, environmental justice, health, education and militarization.
We achieve our goals through the generous service of committed individuals and faith communities, student interns, and Social Work practicum students.
