Carlos Saavedra has been active in the immigrant rights movement for the last 20 years building and co-founding organizations for immigrant students and workers. Since founding the Ayni Institute in 2013, Ayni has been coaching and training organizers and leaders in movement building. The institute deeply believes that in order to bring justice in the world we must renew our world cultures and spiritual traditions to be closer to Mother Earth and Reciprocity, that is why Carlos works with indigenous communities in Latin America to support them.
