La Lutta NMC brings together individuals and groups that combine a high level of expertise in many alternative, independent media areas with a commitment to human rights. La Lutta NMC is a cultural and community organization who believes that social justice issues are not individual, fragmented or disconnected. They are all connected in some way as we are connected. As a result, our program and project activity is rooted in the struggle for human rights and the expressions and actions involved thereof. The following is useful in giving all those interested in working with La Lutta NMC a sense of how we organize our media activity and cultural creativity.

Please note: The following is not a complete list of all that we do or can do for your or your organization. We have the resources, the community partnerships and the will do much more than can be listed here. So, please contact us at via email at
