What are Amigos Programs?

Immigrant Rights Advocacy Program

The program is aimed at youth leadership development and training youth to become human rights advocates. Juventud FACETA was selected by the City of Eugene Human Rights Commission to receive its 2008 Martin Luther King Community Leadership award in recognition of the youth group's "contributions to human rights and race relations."
