Through our efforts to advance people’s democracy, we encourage, promote and work to ensure that every individual participates in the democratic processes that exist in this country.
Not everyone can vote, but everyone can participate in our democracy.
- Everyone can advocate for their rights.
- Everyone can keep their elected and appointed officials accountable.
- Everyone can volunteer to encourage civic participation.
- Everyone can help out a neighbor interested in exercising their rights.
The more Latinx people participate in democracy, the more visibility we’ll have for our community — a very diverse, hardworking, generous community that has always been here.
Legislative & Grassroots Advocacy
Our legislative and grassroots advocacy work is focused on key issues that facilitate growth and opportunities within Latinx communities in Georgia. Together with our members, we keep elected and appointed officials accountable to the community and apprised of its needs, and we keep the community informed and involved in the political issues that can affect their lives.
Latino Vote & Civic Engagement
We want everyone to participate in the democratic process to the extent possible for each individual. Our work to empower voters and encourage civic participation is dependent on the election cycles. Non-citizens are encouraged to volunteer, keep elected officials accountable and advocate for their communities. We inform, educate, register, mobilize and protect those interested in exercising their right to participate in democracy.
K-12 Advocacy Table for English Learners
12 organizations come together to advocate for quality and equitable K-12 education for English Learners and their children (90% of all Latinx children in Georgia are US citizens). English Learning students lag 20 points in graduation rates, few go to college and parents have difficulty engaging and supporting them since no language access policies exist at the state level.
We advance people’s democracy, by weaving these priorities and efforts together. We encourage turnout and participation and then, we advocate to keep those officials accountable to our community’s needs.
