Label: Purpose & Activities

URI’s Cooperation Circles in Latin America and the Caribbean address a wide range of social, environmental and economic issues using an interfaith platform.

URI Latin America and the Caribbean is one of the eight (8) regional anchor points that connect the Cooperation Circles (CCs) within that region, and at the same time link them with URI Global Network . Our region comprises thirty-six (36) CCs organized independently and supporting their actions by themselves.  They are autonomous, and are currently distributed in eleven (11) countries. The size of the CCs varies: from a minimum of seven (7) members to thirty-two (32), who profess different religious traditions, including also the ancestral indigenous spirituality in their continental diversity and also people non-religious who share the principles of the Founding Charter of URI

These CCs encourage cooperation among people, thus addressing the most urgent issues facing their local communities. Their work involves different areas: promoting interreligious and intercultural dialogue between young people and adults; to educate in values towards environment protection as our Mother Earth; improve households in poor communities, educating children and youth in the values of peace and coexistence; combat racial and ethnic discrimination; avoid abuse by gender; empower women against abuse and domestic violence, organizing retreats, make camps and activities in overall to connect with the sacred; ensure compliance human rights, divulge URI´s mission and practice its principles in everyday life experience.

La Región de América Latina y El Caribe es uno de los ocho (8) puntos de anclaje regionales que conectan entre sí a los Círculos de Cooperación (CC) que son el corazón de URI, y a la vez los articulan con la Red de URI Global.
