Geledés, Instituto de Mulher Negra, Brasil
Sueli Carneiro founded Geledes on April 30, 1988 as a black women's political organization. The institutional mission of Geledes is to combat race and gender discrimination, value and promote the rights of Black women in particular, in the Black community and in Brazilian society as a whole. Geledes acts as an impetus in the development of proposals for public policy which promote the visibility, analysis and public debate of the racial problem in Brazil. It encourages the link between civil rights and human rights, thus arousing the strategic process of increasing the popular consciousness of race issues on the national and international levels. It works in networks of both feminist and black community organizations. It has four basic programs: human rights, health, communications and education.

Organización de Desarrollo Étnico Comunitario (ODECO), Honduras
Promote the development of Black Communities (Garifuna and non-Garifuna) of Honduras. These efforts include the conservation and strengthening of national cultural values of Garifunas and other members of the Elnia Black Honurena. With the support of National and International institutions and organizations, ODECO continues to promote projects, change policy and develop action plans that improve the social, economic conditions and political access of these communities. The realities of unemployment and disintegration of living standards tear at the cohesion of communities. The fight to retain the basic Human Rights manifest in the Universal Declaration of the Human Rights and the Constitution of the Republic must include all areas of civil society. ODECO seeks to create cooperative businesses, schools, libraries, professional technical institutes, health and science centers, sports and cultural institutes to adequately provide for the needs of these communities.

Red de Mujeres Afro latinoamericanas y Afro caribeñas,
Costa Rica
In 1992, a network of Afrocaribeñas and Afrolatinoamericanas women from thirty-five regions participated in the First Encounter of Black Women of Latin America and the Caribbean conference to discuss and evaluate the situation of discrimination, violation of human rights, poverty and cultural subordination that the black women experience daily in Latin America and the Caribbean. The systematic exclusion toward the women Afrocaribeñas and Afrolatinoamericanas served as a focus the development of regional strategies to improve the conditions of women. From 1992 to 1996 the Headquarters and Coordination of the Network was in Dominican Republic, from 1997 and as result of the II Encounter of Women Afrocaribeñas and Afrolatinoamericanas, the headquarters moved to the Center of the Women Afrocostarricenses in San José, Costa Rica. The objectives of the network are - To solidify working relationships between of an extensive movement of Afrocaribeñas and Afrolatinoamericanas women;
- Shed light on cultural, political, and socioeconomic reality of black women who are subject to subordination and discrimination as well as the consequent violations of our human rights; - Implement public policy, and change the racist character of these policies; - To fight for international policies that will directly benefit the black women of Latin America and the Caribbean.
