In 2014, the public agenda in Argentina was marked by indisputable evidence that organized crime had infiltrated the government - in different jurisdictions of the country - and by an increase in violent clashes among drug trafficking groups. In this context, national security forces carried out an operation to tackle organized crime in the city of Rosario, thanks in part to reports and information provided by Fundación La Alameda and the local chapter of the Red Nacional Antimafia (National Anti-mafia Network), which was created in 2013 with the support of Avina.
In the highly sensitive social and political context following the disappearance of students in Ayotzinapa, Mexico, the documentary "El valor de lo público" ("The value of public goods"), produced by Avina, became a tool for social and political debate in the Mexican cities where it was shown: Mexico City, Tijuana, and Monterrey.
