Regional At-Large Organizations (RALOs)
The five RALOs unite our At-Large Structures (ALSes) and individual members based on their geographic regions. As the information conduit and facilitators, RALOs disseminate information from ICANN, promote the participation of their members, and channel the regional user point of view to ICANN. Each RALO is governed by its own organizing documents, including a Memorandum of Understanding with ICANN. Playing a key role in ICANN’s regional strategies, several RALOs partner with ICANN to facilitate the development of critical infrastructure for the Domain Name System.

Latin American and Caribbean Islands Regional At-Large Organization
If you are participating in a Latin American or Caribbean Internet users’ organization and are interested in questions related to it, you can help to influence the operation, growth, and development of the Internet. All interested Latin American and Caribbean civil society organizations are invited to join LACRALO, to be part of the choices that govern the Internet.
LACRALO is comprised of the ALSes in Latin America and the Caribbean, accredited by ALAC, as a mechanism to ensure and promote the regional users participation in the policy development processes of the ICANN. LACRALO connects civil society organizations representing the interests of the Internet’s individual end users in Latin America and the Caribbean, making it possible to get our voices and opinions heard within ICANN’s bottom-up, consensus-based multi-stakeholder process of global Internet development.
LACRALO has different and varied organizations in Latin America and the Caribbean Islands, which are organized in ALSes working on issues related to the development of the Internet. To ensure that the perspectives of Latin America and the Caribbean are represented, we invite Internet user organizations from throughout the region to join us. If your organization focuses on improving security and privacy issues of the Internet’s final users and/or on consumer protection, participate and join us!
LACRALO consists of 58 ALSes located in 22 countries and territories.
