The OLA along with The New School has been fortunate to take part in and honor the work of the Association of the Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo. Through the University the Grandmothers have been awarded honorary degrees in light of their important struggle. The OLA has arranged for meetings between the leaders of the Association and students, so that the history and stories of the Grandmothers will be passed on to new generations and further disseminated throughout the world. The OLA looks forward to developing this relationship with the Grandmothers for future events focusing on their work in particular and human rights challenges in general throughout Latin America.
