Founded in 1969, Junta for Progressive Action is the oldest Latinx, community-based nonprofit organization in New Haven, Connecticut. Our mission is to collaborate with Latinx and undocumented communities in the Greater New Haven area to advance the social, economic and civic environment for all, while embracing Latinx cultural traditions.
Puerto Rican community organizers originally founded Junta as an advocacy hub to address the needs of Greater New Haven’s first- generation migrants. Over the past 51 years, Junta has grown to offer no- cost social services, legal services, immigration services, adult education, and youth programs to over 2,000 low-income individuals annually.
