About Us

Since 1977, IFCLA has collaborated with congregations, schools and organizations in the St. Louis metropolitan area, across the U.S., and internationally to work for a more just and equitable world community.


Our Mission

Through education and advocacy, we convene an inter-faith community to accompany the people of Latin America in their work for human rights and social justice.

Our Vision 

IFCLA envisions a world in which partners reach across economic, political and social borders to build a sustainable future for the planet and its people.

Our values

Dignity: Respecting each person's autonomy to act on their own intuition and wisdom. 

Integrity: Acting with honestly and transparency in all situations, even when the outcome of doing so is unclear. 

Solidarity: Recognizing the unity of our mutual struggles toward liberation and supporting each other with compassion. 

Diversity: Finding joy in the many manifestations of what it means to be human. 

Commitment: Showing resolve and resilience through our actions, while sustaining optimism about our collective future.

When our congregation wanted to learn more about issues related to immigration, we turned to IFCLA. What we gained was education, relationships, inspiration, partnership, and opportunities to put faith into action. The IFCLA staff have been with us in every step towards offering sanctuary.
