The Progressive Alliance of the Americas had its inaugural meeting at 11 November 2017 in San José, Costa Rica.
The PA of the Americas is a platform for our members from the Americas to support regional cooperation and to strengthen the political voice of the PA within the Americas.
Mutual support in electoral campaigns; solidarity actions for members and allies; strengthening democracy and fighting populism; challenges of digital capitalism and the future of work; tackling inequality and promoting gender equality; natural resources, extractive industries and their impact on the countries of the Americas are key topics of the future work.
The alliance with the trade unions, women’s and youth movements is integral part of the work of the Progressive Alliance of the Americas and their representatives will be invited to the activities.
The PA of the Americas is coordinated by Monica Xavier, General Secretary of the Socialist Party of Uruguay (PSU), and Viviana Piñeiro, International Secretary of the PSU.
