The Latin American Network of “Católicas por el Derecho a Decidir” (CDD / AL) is an autonomous movement of Catholics committed to the pursuit of social justice and the change of cultural and religious patterns prevailing in societies.
It was set up in 1987, with the conviction that local groups were necessary to address the emergency in which the region was in terms of sexual and reproductive rights.
In 1989, the CDD Regional Office was founded with headquarters in Montevideo and, in 1994, the Charter of Principles was defined.
