The Latin America Solidarity Coalition (LASC) is an association of national and local US-based grassroots Latin America and Caribbean solidarity groups, many of which have long histories of working with grassroots organizations throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. LASCs goal is to define common goals and shared strategies for these groups. LASCs work circles around several hemisphere-wide issues as well as country-specific topics.
