Corporación Instituto Internacional sobre Raza, Igualdad y Derechos Humanos (CIIRIDH) is working with Afro-descendants and other marginalized people in Brazil, Colombia, the Dominican Republic and Peru to create a regional network dedicated to promoting their full and equal participation in social and economic life, and reducing their vulnerability to discrimination and violence. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to strengthen governance in Latin America and the Caribbean. CIIRIDH furthers initiatives that promote and protect human rights and fundamental freedoms of individuals and communities.
