Who we are



The American-Mexican Association USA (AMA-USA) is designed as a “network of networks”. Our members represent community organizations, corporations, academic institutions, local governments, chambers of commerce, media, small businesses, religious institutions, and many other sectors of society.

The mission of AMA is to counter negative discourses around our communities, by showcasing stories of success, perseverance, and determination. Our goal is to bring together successful and renowned leaders who embody and are ready to share what it means to be a Mexican in the United States.

AMA: We make it happen

  • Introduction

    Together, Mexican-Americans and Mexicans proudly represent the coming together of two dynamic nations. With shared historical and cultural ties, we exemplify one of the most important treasures of humanity, the energy and ethos of immigrant communities. Our values and determination to work and overcome socioeconomic challenges have been instrumental in making the United States the great economic power of the last Century. Together, we will soon become the largest ethnic identity in all of North America.

  • Definition

    AMA is a citizen-led effort that aims to strengthen the ties among people on both sides of the border, including organizations and individuals who recognize that, together, we can achieve more. Its agenda comprises the main interests of its members. Its leadership is inclusive and in constant search for solutions to our common problems. AMA is non-partisan, non-for-profit, and non-governmental.

  • Mission

    To be the voice of the communities of Mexican origin in the United States by coming together as a unified, collaborative network.

    Vision

    To be a unified community recognized and appreciated for its undeniable contributions to the United States.
