Our Programs

Community Organizing

Centro Presente is focused on organizing around immigrant rights, worker rights, and civic engagement.

Adult Education

Centro Presente’s dedication to the self-sufficiency of the Latino immigrant community and to the creation of community power is evident in its unique Adult Education program, EFE.

Youth Program

Our Youth Organizing program, Pintamos Nuestro Mundo/We Paint Our World (PNM) was founded in 1997 as a bicultural, bilingual space for Latino immigrant youth between the ages of 11 and 18.

Legal Services

Since 1981, Centro Presente’s Legal Immigration Services Department (LIS) has provided trustworthy, affordable services crucial to the Latin American immigrant community

Our Campaigns

SOMOS/WE ARE

An initiative of the National Alliance of Latin American and Caribbean Communities (NALACC), SOMOS/WE ARE inspires immigrants to take action in reclaiming their humanity and in supporting legislation that truly reflects what immigrants are worth and deserve.

Just Communities/Comunidades Justas

The Just Communities/Comunidades Justas campaign launched in response to the Secure Communities Program (S-Comm) seeks to counteract the U.S. Government’s current “Enforcement Only” response to immigration by educating and mobilizing people against efforts to criminalize undocumented immigrants.

MA Trust Act Campaign

The TRUST Act is a Massachusetts state bill that sets a clear, minimum standard for local governments not to submit to burdensome requests from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to detain people for deportation who have otherwise been ordered released by the courts. Centro Presente and the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON) have convened a diverse coalition of immigrant advocates, faith organizations and allies in the solidarity movement to mobilize support for this proactive campaign.
