The Calgary Interchurch Committee on Human Rights in Latin America (CICHRLA) is a group of people who share concerns about events in Latin America. CICHRLA was formed in 1978 as a follow-up to a Calgary conference entitled "Perspectives on Latin America". CICHRLA's work focusses on educating people in Calgary and Southern Alberta about the situation in Latin America. Their work has involved hosting speakers, responding to crises in Central American refugees in Calgary. Most members of CICHRLA are also involved with other Calgary groups with concerns directly related to Central and South America.
Thegroup also has available a slide-tape entitled "Root of the Problem".
