The Democracy Center was founded in California in 1992, moved its base to Bolivia in 1998, and today operates from Latin America, Europe and the U.S. with a diverse international team. Our work has ranged from support for the immigrant rights movement in California, to leadership in the battle for economic justice in era of globalization, to direct support to social, economic, and environmental justice activists worldwide.

Through all this diverse work and history, our activities have always been underpinned by our core Mission of strengthening activists for justice. Here you can access materials from several of our earlier projects, including our reporting on the Cochabamba Water Revolt and our former blogs: the Blog from Bolivia and Getting Action.
