CASA offers training on social justice issues in Oaxaca and Chiapas.

Also see our CASA Writers blog.

We share lessons we learn from the resistance movements in Mexico with our home communities. We publish news and analysis in our newsletter, host workshops, short-term solidarity delegations, and speaking events.
