Our message on COVID-19

We recognize that these are times of great uncertainty, as our global community comes together to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. As the virus spreads across the planet, we’re reminded of the interconnected nature of our existence, and of the need to care for and stand in solidarity with all people.

We would like to extend our heartfelt best wishes to our community of supporters, clients, and partners across the Americas and the world. We appreciate everything you do, in the face of this crisis and every day, to make the world a more just and united place.

As an organization, AIDA has taken the necessary measures to best protect our team, our allies, and all those around us. We have suspended all travel, and closed our offices. Our team members are continuing to work from home.  We are closely monitoring information from the World Health Organization, as well as national updates from each of the countries in which we have team members and allies.

The multinational nature of AIDA, with members spread from Chile to the United States, places us as individuals at various stages of this crisis. As a team, we stand united and remain committed as global citizens to doing our part to stop the spread of the virus.

The largely remote nature of our organization means that many of our work processes are uninterrupted, and our work is continuing as smoothly as possible. Even in the best of times, we embrace digital best practices including virtual team meetings, digital project management, and secure online communications.

At AIDA, we remain committed to defending the right to a healthy environment and advancing our work for environmental and climate justice in Latin America. We appreciate your understanding as our team members make the needed changes in their personal and professional lives to adjust to our current reality.

Professional communication with our attorneys and team members will continue as usual. If you have any questions or concerns, please write: [email protected].  We thank you for your patience and will get back to you as soon as possible.
