DECLARATION of MORELIA
1st Latin American Migrant Community Summit
Morelia, Michoacán, México. May 13, 2007
We, the organizations who have convened the First Latin American Migrant Community Summit, and who are meeting here in Morelia, Michoacán, Mexico from May 10-13, 2007, take this opportunity to express our full satisfaction with the results of this four-day collaboration. We are particularly pleased with the level of participation of representatives of Latin American migrant organizations from many places of origin, as well as many countries of transit and destination, both in the global North as well as within the region. Although the majority of the organizations whose representatives have come together at this Summit do not share a long history of working together, the spirit that has prevailed over the past four days is one of fellowship and solidarity.
