Chile Digno (Spanish for "Worthy Chile") is a Chilean political coalition of left-wing parties with a Marxist–Leninist, ecologist and regionalist ideology.

The political alliance was created under the name Unity for Change after the victory of the conservative coalition Chile Vamos in the 2017 general election.[2]
