Empowerment through information in Ecuador

2 months ago

Development and Peace’s Ecuadorean partners, the Latin American Association of Popular Education and Communication (ALER) and the Latin American Information Agency (ALAI), promote peace, good governance and active citizenship by disseminating socially relevant information. 

As a coalition of community radio stations, ALER is responding to the COVID-19 crisis by broadcasting special programming to hispanophone audiences in South America. Their broadcasts provide accurate information, dispel myths, relay important public health messages, promote community solidarity and offer advice on coping with the coronavirus pandemic. 

As an organization dedicated to the democratization of information, ALAI is creating and distributing content that helps people contextualize the pandemic and its intersection with issues of social, economic and gender justice.
