Greetings all,

Friends, communities, solidarity organizations, men and women that have believed and continue to believe in this alternative political project that emerged 23 years ago, to you who have accompanied us through this historic journey and formed a part of the great ADES family, from the President of the Association, we offer you a sincere and heartfelt greeting.

We recognize our work would not be possible if we did not walk hand in hand with you. It is all of your support and unconditional dedication, in addition to commitment and trust, which allows us to advance towards a more just society. As ADES, we reaffirm our commitment to the accompaniment of communities and to the defense of Human Rights.

As ADES we want to continue on the path forged by the men and women who offered their lives to reach for their dreams of building a better society. Your transformative force inspires, your spirit accompanies us and calls us not to lose heart, but continue forward.
