Latin America

Our affiliates in Latin America form the connective strand that allows IRA to weave a broad and deep network of literacy leaders. In many cases, this network also provides a grassroots local connection for our international projects and a catalyst for activities that respond to their communities' specific needs. IRA activities in the region are coordinated by the International Development in Latin America Committee.

Contact IRA or the Latin American network of affiliates list below for more information.

The XIII Congreso Latinoamericano para el Desarrollo de la Lectura y la Escritura, with the theme "Leer y Escribir en un Mundo Diverso: Desafíos y Perspectivas," will be held in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, September 30–October 2, 2015.
