Abrazando Nuestras Raíces

Thank you for your interest in our Abrazando Nuestras Raíces program!

The program for the Protection of Migrant Families Abrazando Nuestras Raíces (Embracing Our Roots) was launched in 2018 with the aim of promoting family reunification among elderly (age 60 and over) living in Mexico with their migrant children in the United States who, due to their immigration status, have not seen their parents for 10 years or more.


This program rebuilds and strengthens the Mexican identity of people living United States of America, sharing culture, customs and traditions of Mexico; helping them to find the roots that form its dual-nationality.

The Abrazando Nuestras Raíces program is exclusively for members of ACIJ. If you are not yet a member, sign up here.  If you want to participate in the program this is what you have to do:
