Voter Engagement

We believe in combining the power of the people with civic engagement. Despite the current pandemic, we have the ability to come together and make our voices heard remotely. Change is coming.

In 2020 we partnered with organizations around the state to work for a complete count of the census, register all eligible voters, and fight for a high voter turnout. We continue our efforts year round by advocating for political change that will create the impact our community needs.

Immigration Advocacy

For years, Congress has discussed the need for comprehensive immigration reform, yet there has been little progress in advancing legislation that would protect the millions of immigrants living in the United States without permanent residence or citizenship. Over the years some actions have been take to alleviated the issue including the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for refugees from certain countries, and the lesser known Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) program that specifically protects Liberian, and now Venezuelan, refugees.
