Asociación Tepeyac de New York Collection


Asociación Tepeyac de New York Collection


The Tepeyac Association is a non-profit network of 40 community organizations, whose mission is to promote the social welfare and human rights of Latino immigrants, specifically the undocumented in New York City. Many undocumented immigrants were affected by the World Trade Center disaster. From the first hours, Asociación Tepeyac stepped in to advocate for immigrants affected by the tragedy, not only for those from the Mexican communities in New York but for immigrants from all over Latin America and other places. This collection includes a variety of materials which document some of the impact the WTC disaster has had on undocumented immigrants and it also presents some of the programs Asociación has devised to meet their needs.
